“May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun
And find your shoulder to light on,
To bring you luck, happiness and riches
Today, tomorrow and beyond.”

How beautiful against the purple! I'm calling him a leaf butterfly since I can't remember the name. That should be his official name, anyway! Up close, looks a bit like a fancy moth!

I think it is a moth, ginny, but not 100 percent sure. moth or butterfly it is a sight to see with those flowers. we have a yellow one, a really big one like this one but bright yellow, can't get it to sit still long enough to capture it for ever in time like you did this one

It is a Common Brimstone. From a comment to a post in my Picture Book the other day I learned that the word "butterfly" originates from the male Brimstone. The top of the wings of the male are buttery yellow in colour. But they never sit still with their wings open, so they are hard to catch pictures of with the wings spread. The females are white on top. Sitting with their wings closed I cannot really tell whether it is a female or a male. In my Mosaic Monday collage today at the other blog, there is one picture of one with the wings open, but not very sharp since it was fluttering.
