Vanessa atalanta
Vero Beach FL
Here is a Red Admiral. The back wing is a little torn, but this gives it character. Spend your lifetime munching leaves, getting fat, molting occaisionally, then WHAM! you are a flying creature looking for nectar and mates and that is it man. If ou survive a few weeks, you are lucky. If you survive 5 months, you are a Monarch. How dorky is that? Anyway those are my thoughts on Lepidoptera. No message here, and the photo is never gonna win any prizes, but I sure like taking pictures of them.

Butterflies are my favourite subjects of photography as well.
