I saw this butterfly for the first time - two of them about 10 minutes apart in different area. They look like huge Meadow Fritillary butterflies. I love them. Great shot!

Thanks Alice! Behind the Lodge on Mount Magazine there is an area where the wild flowers are allowed to grow...a lot of it is milkweed and it's butterfly heaven! I felt like a kid in a candy store ;)
