it’s me again,
this was another first for me this summer and i was so thrilled to see and to photograph this little beauty. i didn’t know what it was at first and i had fun looking thru my books to find it. it’s small and didn’t stay still hardly at all, but i managed to get a dorsal and ventral photo’s, which is what i love to do when the bitterflies let me. i just love how he’s using his antennae to check out the flower in the ventral view.
hope you can use these in your archives.
as always, thanks for all your help,
venice
