Great banner!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Thanks to everyone for all the thumbs and a special thanks to @mellielong and @jmorth for the Acorn

@Fleur569 the body of this butterfly, Common Blue (Polyommatus Icarus), isn't actually white. Here is the original photo plus a better one showing the underside of the wings and another showing the top. This is a female.
