Brimstone

Hi,

I'd say it was a male based on wing shape. The hook on the hindwing is nice and pointed, its more rounded in females.

Thank you!

Thank you! Without meaning to sound cheeky, if you have the chance please take a glance at some of the other butterfly photos I've recently uploaded and let me know their gender :) many thanks!
