No clue, but quite lovely.
They don't pause long for us to get shots of them although this one accommodated you very well.
I am hopeless with names but I do thinks it's a lovely capture! I'm sure the big spots do well at keeping predators at bay.
Certainly looks like one to me. So maybe its range is expanding?
This is so, so pretty!!!! A perfect composition and wonderful colors of nature.
It is a beautiful butterfly and lovely image. I wish I could help with the id, I am sure someone will help you! Have a great day and happy weekend!
In the satyr family, maybe the Little Wood Satyr
he/she is beautiful whatever species.. great find
Probably wants to flutter inside for a REAL fast ride. Forget the flowers!
Don't know him but he is definitely attractive. Think he got blown off course?
Nice shot, Terri!
Hi Terri, What a neat butterfly shot! Not sure about what kind it is but sure looks good. Thank you so much for your kind words on my blog. Hope you have a great weekend!
Pretty whatever it is:)
Wow, absolutely beautiful!
No idea on the ID but a lovely image!
what a pretty little thing!!! zippo on the i.d, i did look in my book but i did not come up with anything!! have a wonderful weekend!!
I know nothing about butterflies, I just love to look at them. I love their amazing symmetry. Great capture!
I hadn't heard of this butterfly, so I looked it up. Sounds like it is very rare and a protected one. It sure looks like the photos I saw, so if it is indeed a Mitchell's satyr he really got far from home! Very interesting. And great capture!
It is an unusual butterfly. It may have tried to migrate a different way this year. We have some butterflies now in our state that I never ever saw as a kid in southern Iowa.
Love the pewter coloring.
Such an incredible photo. Have a great weekend.
I hope someone knows...it sure is beautiful!
Sorry, can't help you there but whatever it is it is quite lovely.Diana
What a sweet, tiny thing!
Now I am curious! I love a good critter mystery! ☺
No idea, but nice snap.
have no idea but he's pretty.
No help; from me, but it sure does have pretty markings!
Wish I could help you identify this lovely butterfly!
I don't know what is is, but it is a beautiful photo!
I have never seen one of these here in Iowa. It is unusual to see a butterfly in grays.
not a clue but aren't their markings amazing?!
Love the beautifully delicate pattern on the wings! Never have seen one!
Beautiful Butterfly don't know what it is. Great Capture Terri.
I hope all is well in your world and that you are just taking a break....just checking in
