Ooh pretty! The Southern Festoon I saw at a butterfly sanctuary had a creamy yellow background colour, do the differences indicate gender?

Male butterfly is a little bit smaller than female. There may be some variability from creamy white to yellow but this doesn't affect determination of gender :).
