Bright butterfly

I think this is a Pearl Crescent butterfly.  It was a nice splash of color.

The markings on it are beautiful too. SO different than the Monarch.

Clint said...

Totally gorgeous.

Great shot...we have a ways to go before we see butterflies around our neck of the woods. It's been a cold/rainy spring!!!

Vintage West said...

Oh so vibrant! No butterflies here yet, but I did see a moth around the porch light last night :)

Beautiful butterfly! Looks like the color was "dabbed" on in little dots. Very nice T.

Can't wait until the "butterfles" return to Upper Michigan. We did see a flash of color when a cardinal stopped by the bird feeder yesterday in the snow :)

Ms. Becky said...

you live in a most colorful world - butterflies, Blue Bonnets, Indian Paintbrush, all those various species of birds you've been posting. this one must have been a bit harder to notice though, and it's a treasure.

Kerri said...

It is a beauty! They are normally abundant here - but haven't seen any so far - we've had SO MUCH RAIN.... and terrible storms yesterday.

Ah were stalking butterflies now...

I love the colors too!

don said...

It's a beauty and makes a great "splash of color" in this shot. Nice one!

Liesl said...

A beaut! We have a butterfly here with the same colouring but very different patterns to that one!

Bob Bushell said...

It is a rare for me, beautiful photo.

Lois Evensen said...

How very pretty!

Woody said...

I've never heard of a pearl crescent butterfly, we only seem to get monarch's and swallowtails. This is really beautiful and a real treat, we will not see any for sometime.

I'm glad you liked the non-rusty shot, more to come :-)

Woody said...

I hit send too soon! I did a sequence on growing butterfly's on my old blog, have a look (my old blog has a few butterfly posts in the animal/insect category)

What a beautiful design she has on her wings.

Sérgio Pontes said...

The Wife of a Dairyman said...

Great color and capture!

Robin said...

Theresa, very pretty!

Sharon said...

I don't know butterflies - I know Monarch and Pretty, about it. This one is Pretty!

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Like everyone else, that is a beautiful butterfly, yet aren't they all? I find butterflies much more cooperative in having their photo taken than birds are. Birds love to torment me.

Allison said...

A harbinger of summer...

BJ Roan said...

No butterflies up here yet, but I did see a honey bee today.

Trisha said...

So vibrant! I can't wait to see some here :)

Nancy said...

I just realized how little I know about butterflies. I guess I just figure they are all "butterflies."

Maybe I'll learn something as the spring and summer roll on. Pretty butterfly. ;)

Deb said...

I love butterflies...

Giga said...

Ja jeszcze nie widziałam motylka w tym roku, a co dopiero takiego ślicznego. Pozdrawiam

Rose said...

I have only seen one butterfly so far...I have always loved butterflies and can't wait for them to be back in full force!

Farmchick said...

Wonderful color on this butterfly. I have seen a few here recently and so glad!

Dani said...

very very beautiful.

Amila Kanchana said...

Wow,look at that one,what beautifully marked wings!

(Lady Gourmet) Catherine said...

Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I hope that you will find my recipes easy and good.

I love butterfly's. When I see one it makes me smile and think what a beautiful transformation. Miracles do happen.

Blessings,

She/he's gorgeous!

Leave It To Davis said...

Don't you just get so excited when you catch a butterfly with his wings open like that? I know I do. Unless someone has tried to photograph a butterfly, they don't know how difficult it is! They usually fly off before I get it focused!

Ann said...

I want to comment on the beautiful reflection and green, but came here, to the butterflies.

I see the swan plant devoid of butterflies here.
