Butterfly on yellow! (with hitchhiker!)

At last a butterfly shot! There are almost none in Beirut - this one lives in Deir el Kamar in the Chouf Mountains.
The weather is horribly hot (35'C), dusty and too humid, it's started thundering so it may even rain!! ( if it could wait for me to walk to school, collect Grace and get back home I would be grateful!)

Thanks for all recent comments..I do appreciate your time and effort doing so :-)
Black spotted white butterfly......see my 265.....uploaded one...
