Absolutely exquisite! We live near Big Spring and have many butterflies in wet years, but I have NEVER seen one like this here....guess they live further south? Thanks for sharing this beautiful photo!

I thought we'd already spotted one of these in our Wildscape, but it was a first, according to the butterfly checklist I keep on this blog. :-)

Absolutely gorgeous! Sadly, Long Island doesn't get the beautiful butterflies (or bees) in once did. Thank you for posting this beauty!
