    I just enjoy looking at your site; the pictures you have put up are quite impressive and I just love the detail you have put in. I have to say that your pictures are simply breathe taking.

    I love the tattered ones. Mourning cloaks do this, too. Live so long they fray!

    Pat, a very pretty shot!

    The little white butterflies are pretty much all we’re seeing this summer, rarely a monarch. Looks like a bird tried to catch this one but it managed to get away, minus some wings.

  22. Beautiful, even tattered. Love catching up on your blog. You’re nature photos are always spectacular.
