About 2 inches as pictured
This is a difficult butterfly to capture for an odd reason. Their favorite perching spots are on rocks, the ground, the side of a building--or On the PHOTOGRAPHER----probing for minerals and such--- this tickles!
V1--he nicely opened up on a red rock. V2-- LOL the screen door--a different pose
Sending hearty thank yous to Ava (avacreates) and Frank (bagman) for their User Awards for the fritillary!
and yes--- Three's a charm-- I WILL find something different for tomorrow!
