Gorgeous butterflies with lovely colors and patterns. Stunning images! Cynthia, I always love your posts because you feature birds, insects, etc. that we don't have here in the midwest. Beautiful!

It is interesting to see the butterflies that are not found here in the Ohio Valley. This year has been wonderful for butterflies. We have had so much rain but still plenty of sunshine that there are so many flowers blooming giving the butterflies and caterpillars plenty of food.
