Nectar gathering

This is another painted lady butterfly sipping nectar. Thought this one would make a nice addition to the theme this week, although I suspect that there's going to be a lot of butterflies showing up.

I was really stoked that this guy let me get really close to him before decided to fly off. There's some amazing detail in this one.

I want to also thank you all immensely. I woke up this morning to not one, not two, but three of my recent photos on the POP page. Your comments and encouragement are what really keep me going here. Thank you all very much.

Please view this one large.
This is wonderfully close and has captured details of markings

@maggiemae Thank you very much, but up until this month, I didn't show up on the PP very much at all.
