Many Butterflies are injured by now but this one looks OK. I guess.

A nice pristine specimen and captured beautifully, Karl! Good timing to get the proboscis actually extended and nectaring in the blossom. Lovely image!

Gorgeous shot of this stunning beauty-love the flower too. Background colors are very pleasing-they look like a watercolor wash .
