Purplish copper camera critters
This "purplish copper" butterfly is apparently quite rare in these parts, but my husband got these photos of just such a one during his walk in the Cypress Hills, on the border of the Canadian provinces of Alberta and Sakatchewan, with the Grasslands Naturalists. The butterfly posed prettily for him on a flower that shares some of its colors. I particular like its bright fuchsia-purple antennae.
