    It was an overcast morning so I didn't get the clarity I would have liked but I love the symmetry in this shot.

    Seems to me I should be using this image to promote racial harmony (2 colors of butterflies), but a proper caption eludes me.

    I love it! Two beautiful butterflies in one shot. Are those purple things some kind of thistle?

    Yes, they seem to be...I have always taken the flora and wildlife for granted having grown up here but now am finding it really interesting now that I am photographing it. Not a flower you'd plant but exotic to me nevertheless. I have pictures of the plants before blooming with ants crawling all over the bulb.

    The colors are intense. Especially the blacks. How close were you?

    I think I was around 5 feet away for this pic. When I first saw them I was probably around 40 feet away, so not knowing how long they'd be there I quickly began walking in that direction, stopping every few feet to take a picture just in case that was the last opportunity I got lol....but they were doing that thing where they fly away, and then come back to the same spot. That's why youhave to be patient with butterflies and dragonflies both, when they fly away stand still for a moment because they often return to the same spot.
