wow that is beautiful Stera. Toria will be jealous that you have seen one. I don't think there are any limes near by I don't remember seeing any on our local walks.
aren't they beautifully marked.

Thankyou! Its been grand to share it. I sent the photo to Staffs Wildlife Trust for identification as I hadn't a clue what it was. Must be 20 years ago since we live with those limes (and the yearly chore of removing the suckers...)
