this is another species of butterfly i was happy to see this year, when our butterfly popluation was way down due to no flowers for spring . freak cold snap ruined all of our wildflowers in the smoky mountains
buckeye butterfly chris christopher ewing eyes frilitary insect wings
he’s a pretty one Chris, love the markings on it.
Beautiful buckeye butterfly, Chris! I looked it up in the National Audubon Society Field Guide, and I think your photo is much better than theirs! I love the composition, and I congratulate you on such great focus. I was chasing butterflies today, and believe me, I know how difficult it is to nail a good shot of them! Lovely job!
the lighting on this is amazing, really makes the colors pop
this so much minnie, bonnie, and john, not that i havent appreciated the butterflies we did get, but it was very nice seeing something different. and bonnie thanks for looking that up for me :) might send to national audubon? if you still have link..send it to me :) and yes..its a lot of patience and readjusting…but..when ya can get a good shot.its worth it all in the end ;-)
Lovely butterfly…. beautiful markings and color on this guy.
Beautiful Colors,captured well.We’re lucky I guess to see anything with the late frezze and drought this summer.
