Camera Critters #284


I have often seen a beautiful butterfly while wandering around central Oregon, but have never been able to get a photograph of it…until recently.

This beautiful lep is a Milbert's Tortoiseshell.  I found it hanging around the yellow buds at Fireman’s Pond in Redmond, Oregon.
