Viceroy

I finally saw a butterfly to photograph this year.  I’ve hardly seen any out and about this year, and those that I saw were not during times that I could photograph.  Unfortunately it was so windy that the plant it was on was swinging wildly all over the place, so it is not a very good photograph.  I probably wouldn’t even post it, if not for the fact that I didn’t have any butterflies on here yet.

It is a Viceroy  (Limenitis archippus).  Back when I used to paint, I used to sometimes paint Viceroys.  Sorry the photo isn’t better.  If you’d seen the wind, you would wonder how I even got this shot.  LOL

Hopefully I can get some better butterfly photos in the future.
