Thank you! I had just returned to the trail head after a hike and noticed many different species of butterflies around. When I saw this one though I just had to try for a picture. It was patient enough to let me get a shot with a macro lens. (Seems like I never have a preferred lens with me.)
Our city (suburb of Ft. Lauderdale) is called butterfly capital of the world. There is even an attraction called Butterrfly World net us. I guess I’d have to go there to see this particular one as I’ve not noticed it around the neighborhood and from your description I guess I won’t. 😊Lovely photos.
