Inflight Brimstone

A pair of Brimstone Butterflies which I shot during their courtship flight.
They continued to fly around each other and spiralled up into the sky and eventually I lost sight of them.

    1. Thanks Wendy. Problem is they just kept flying higher and higher, quite something really and different species appear to have different styles.
