Passion Butterfly

Agraulis vanillae

Description:

Found a lovely trio of these butterflies outside in my yard, relaxing on an oleander as the sun sets and the air cools.

Notes:

Love that small red area on their wings!

Thank you textless! I wish you could of seen how it looks with open wings! Poor guy appeared to be camera-shy, unfortunately.
