Was at my favorite place for butterfly's and seen this guy every time I placed the tripod down to get a photo he would take off but would land about 3 ft away this went on for over an hour I finally managed to get a shot.
not sure what it is. So any info would be great. Thanks for looking and all the comments on my photos.

What a gorgeous butterfly, the colours and markings are wonderful - doesn't it stand out from the background! You've captured it well. I think I may have rotated the image 90 deg clockwise, but that is just a personal thing. Can't help on the ID I'm afraid, whereabouts did you capture it?

Good detail, you are right they can be very difficult to pin down if you will excuse the pun.
