Beautiful Butterfly

The last hurrahs of summer are here. The flowers are fading away and the last of the butterflies are migrating through. This beautiful specimen stopped by for a bit of nectar and a rest of his/her wings. I didn't doctor the photos at all besides cropping a couple. That is just what it looked like. Isn't nature amazing????

Ooooh, painted ladies - We raised these in the spring from caterpillers, watched them make their crysilis, and released them into our back yard. It is very easy:
