Took this picture last summer in my back yard here in Northern Alabama. Only one like it I saw, and I’m an avid butterfly picture taker It didn’t stay for me to photograph for more than two seconds and it took off. Wonder if you can identify this beautiful creature for me…

Hi Ellen,
We know of more than one person who considers the Red Spotted Purple to be the most beautiful North American butterfly.
