    Chiller's butterfly gave me hope of shooting a nice specimen. However i was only able to catch this beat up little guy. I guess those false eyes he had on his tail at one time worked.

    Artichoke thistle, is a non native plant in California, and is a pest to remove from our wildlands. (sigh)

    You know I have seen this plant all over here lately and kept asking what it was but nobody seemed to know. So glad you posted these and solved the mystery for me!!! I think they are really cool looking!! What a lovely butterfly too! Good job!! : )

    Great shots snownow. The butterflies wings look pretty tattered up there. Nice work on these. My fave is the second pic. :thumbup:
