This was captured very late in the evening, as the sun was setting. The butterflies are hiding during the day, and are only making an appearance when it starts to cool off a bit.

Beautiful captures. The background colours are so complimentary to the butterfly.

They can always come here if they want to cool off a bit!! (It's raining again!)
