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.

I love your photos!!

Thanks so much for enjoying my painting process! My commissions are piling up, but I love the challenge each one presents. As you have seen, I am very slow at what I do! LOL

Hope that you are having a wonderful weekend!

Dick did very well for you. I have the worst time taking photos of butterflies. Believe me, I've tried.
