two photos – can you help me
Hi bugman
I enclose two photos that I took on the outskirts of Beijing in China. The two mainly white butterflies are not very large – between 1-2 inches I should think. The second picture I have called a chinese grasshopper for want of a better idea. It’s quite brightly coloured and from memory about 3-4 inches long. I hope you can help me by telling me what they are.
Thanks again
John Rocha

Hi John,
The mating butterflies are Gossamer Winged Butterflies, Lycaen Blues, though we do not know the species. The Grasshopper might be one of the Toothpick Grasshoppers.
