Great shot! Aren't they gorgeous? Went camping in the Appalachian Mtns in Sept. years ago, to see the annual migration of these beautiful butterflies. They go through a small pass high in the mtns by the millions and you can see them collecting on the trees in the evening to overnight together before continuing on the next morning. It was a moving experience. I have felt a personal connection with these fab. butterflies ever since.

Awesome close-up ! We rarely ever get to see these anymore, they have changed their migratory route, darn it...
