_MG_2733 painted Lady Butterfly on Garlic Chive

For at least the past three years butterfly visits have been very sparse in my part of Western North Carolina. All insect population, as a matter of fact, is down tremendously - especially bees. It makes me very sad. Today, this butterfly decided to stay for an extended (in butterfly time) visit and I was able to capture several good views with my 300mm f/4 lens.

Outstanding capture with a great pose and perch! Details and texture especially on the body are fantastic.
