  Ok, so I may be a closet 'flutterer', ha ha.  I've been getting into the butterflies a bit more lately because it gives me something to do on those slow bird days.  There's been more variety here in France compared to around Amersham, but I may need to get a guide book, as my glorified pamphlet doesn't cover mainland Europe.  Some of the IDs I've made here don't seem to add up, so I'm hoping to procure a book from a fellow down the road who has a few.  Until then, these IDs are tentative.
