I’m always intrigued and impressed by the color and patterns in nature. Surely, any reasonable person can see, there is a master designer. One of the interesting aspects of seeing a butterfly this close is noticing the presence of hair on their back. You don’t really notice that when they are flitting about the flowers.
I’m not exactly sure what kind of butterfly this is. I spent some time trying to find another butterfly with similar color and patterns on the wings, but I was unable to spot one in my Google search. If you can identify this butterfly, I’d be interested in knowing.
