Interesting ...

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

Re: Interesting ...

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

Re: Nice butterfly!

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

Re: Twins

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!
