Pumice Dweller
The gray pumice in the Mt. St. Helens National Volcanic Monument holds much more life than I had expected. This butterfly actually had a huge amount of wildflowers to feed from, something I did not expect.

This is a fine specimen of the Checkerspot
butterfly. Somebody once told me,
"Butterflies have very short lives."

Thanks for the identification.
It's a shame Butterfly's gone...

It was kind of lazy... I'm glad it let me get a picture of it.

Yes, I love insects! They are very beautiful. These are one of my favorite kinds of butterfly. I will be sure to look at yours as well!
