I was delighted to capture these two Painted Lady butterflies September 8th on our walking trail in our woods showing a pretty pattern with their closed wings...It was a good day for finding butterflies. Yesterday I only saw one Monarch and it got away from me:) I am hoping to find more varieties now that our purple Asters started to bloom yesterday.

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!
