American Lady
Vanessa virginiensis
Sept. 10, 2014

  The American Lady is a modest-size butterfly and a joy to see.

  Backlighting and translucent wings make the color pattern of the partially closed wings of the American Lady more complex.

  More important, isn't she beautiful!

Photo note: I used the Pentax K20D, with the SMC-A* 200mm macro lens, for the two photos, taken on September 7, 2014.
