King of the Hill

SDP  2-25-12
When pursuing butterflies at Butterfly Estates, I discovered it helps to look down occasionally. That's where I discovered this Great Southern White Butterfly sitting on a rock.  Nice of it to land on something with a contrasting tone and texture to help show itself off.  I love that eyeball and those turquoise-looking antennae.

Amazing creatures that fascinate all of us. You're right about the contrasting colors; down right civil of this beauty to accommodate you!

I am really impressed that you know the names of the different kinds of butterflies. I know monarchs and viceroys, but the knowledge ends there.

It almost looks like it's from another world, maybe even angelic. Very cool!
