Basilarchia astyanax 3-3 1/2 inches
A large colorful butterfly that will be seen in woodlands and lawns and gardens. Red-spotted refers to bright red spots on the underwing! View 2
Apologies to those who have commented on the Eastern Tailed Blue--- I will do some more work on the image and repost another time. Thanks to Ronnie AG for very appropriate suggestions!
Amazing shot, very sharp with great details and a most beautiful subject!
Excellent macro, perfectly done!
This is an absolutely gorgeous creature!
Great shot as always, Jenn.
Excellent images Jenn !! Such beauty here !!
WHat a very beautiful butterfly with its graded tones
Now, these are two class shots, Jenn: I especially love V 1 in which the darkish insect displays so well against the light greens of the surrounds.
I thought at first we had 2 different butterflies here until I read your intro.
I love them both, Jenn. I think I prefer the simplicity of V1, with an almost metallic quality to the wing color.
Two stunning images.
What a nice color perfect
Exquisite x 2.

Version one for me today Jenn, just for keeping so much detail in those black wings, not always easy to achieve.
Both really lovely.
Stunning detail and colour in these beautiful Images!!
Such a dramatically beautiful butterfly. The wings look like the finest of silk.
Two beautifully captured images showing the detail and colours of this insect well.
oh what a beauty, it looks so oriental. I love the shine on the black wings!
Don't think we have this species here in Britain what a beauty - great to see

Both great images...
Has a good ''sheen'' to this one Jenn.

Glorious capture Jennnn. A brilliant creature.
Two great shots, Jen.
I particularly love the tones and colours in the wings of V1; special!
a very beautiful butterfly well captured
2 great images, the colour and detail is first class.
This one is beautiful on both sides - you are fortunate to be having so many butterflies. Very sparse here right now, and hoping it will get better as the weather cools. Queens seem to be the only kind I see. Although, I did find a black swallowtail cat on my parsley this morning. It was a big one, so it's probably going to wander away from the plant soon.
Stunning captures, smelting DOF and excellent details in both images!
Love the strong diagonal ending in that gorgeous butterfly
Exceptional quality image, Jenn.
Has to be V2 but what magnificent images Jennn
Good shots, Jennn, the only butterflies that I have seen in my garden, this year, are Cabbage Whites,
Just superb Jenn - v1 in particular is absolutely top class
Two superb images Jennn - love the sheen on the wins in V1.
Two beautiful captures and outstanding pieces of work.
what can I say Jenn, all those UAs speak for themselves!
Two excellent macro shots with wonderful detail ,light and colours -very well done , Jenn......
What a beauty, gorgeous capture Jenn.
Two brilliant images of this beautiful and exotic butterfly, both versions deserve an upload in their own right
