Northern Pearly-Eye

The NPE stopped long enough for me to capture him. They are so fast and tend not to stop for viewing.

Norma, what a beautiful butterfly! I’m not familiar with these. I’m wondering if you cropped in some from the right and maybe just a touch off the top it would improve the this lovely image even more by taking the butterfly a little off center? You also might could tone down the brighter grasses in the background too. Just a thought. You really captured some nice details in the butterfly. Very nice.
