A wonderful photo! Funnily enough I have been chasing butterflies around the garden, though I didn't get any as beautiful as this photo. Lovely capture! Happy 4th of July :)

Beautiful ! I don't know what happens, but I haven't seen one single butterfly this year, already last year I saw only a little one, looking like a posh moth. I don't know where they went.

So simple, so sweet...great shot.

Gorgeous shot! Would that be a pearl bordered fritillary, by any chance?

Shelle said...

a wonderful capture of all his glory...something tells me butterflies know they're beautiful...maybe it's the way this one is displaying that great design.
