  40. Hannah says:

    Your butterfly makes me remember the Gulf Fritillary’s of my childhood that had silver on their wings. This one seems to have seen better days, with the little tear on its wing, but I like the stance and the rapt way it is eyeing the camera with its round little eyes, as it continues to sip the lovely nectar from the wonderful swirly flowers.

  41. beautiful butterfly. 🙂
