I love all butterflies, but I guess these are not quite so popular if you are a keen gardener. Nicely captured though.

No, no, no, not them!
Pet hate of the summer: their caterpillars have denuded some of my roses and bilberry shrubs more or less completely.
Why can't they go for stinging nettles or buddleya, like so many nice butterflies?

The name of this flutterby is Cabbage White? Something else I've learned from you today! Nice shots...great detail!

Re police stations: It is my understanding that two way glass is in place in many police stations.
