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.

Misty Dawn’s Camera Critter Meme is a great way see critters the world over. Go to the homepage here to see more. Then join the fun and add your own.
