  1. Really nice shot! It looks like one of the butterflies is being held up by the other as its feet aren’t touching anything?! Posted 3 years ago

    1. Thanks so much Ferdy! This was an awesome day for wildlife photography. Everywhere you look there was an insect in reproduction mode (my last three insect copula's upload). As a matter of fact this was the first warm day in the area, marking the end of spring. Comparing to 2017, an atypical year, there are lots of species of wild flower still in bloom, as a typical year for the season, and lots of late spring insects in reproduction.
