Description:

Spotting #1,000!!!

Habitat:

Christmas tree field.

Notes:

Well, here it is, my 1,000th spotting! It's been a great ride y'all and what better to celebrate it with than one of my favorite subjects... a butterfly! I spent over ten minutes with this beautiful little thing. He (I'm assuming it's a male) would fly back and forth from three or so different flowers chasing other Coppers and even flew at my head trying to get me out of his territory.
