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.

Thanks once again Karen! I do have to agree that they are amazing creatures, might have a new favorite myself.
