ID ?

I think this is a 'Mourning Cloak', not too sure though.
Taken in the wild in Alberta - just back from 3 weeks in Canada.

Know as the Mourning Cloak in North America and the Camberwell Beauty in the UK, so I guess that as it was taken in Alberta it will be the former rather than the latter. What ever the name a great shot.

A fine butterfly, beautifully coloured and so well captured.
Nice to see you back after your travels across the pond.

I am glad you have ID'd the butterfly because I have recently been to Alberta and have some similar shots! I await further uploads with interest.
