Clodius Paranassin Butterfly (Thank you Judith for the ID)- taken in Capital Forest near Olympia, Wa.
I really appreciate the comments!
awesome butterfly shot Jim
Jim--I think it may be a Clodius Paranassin butterfly. It is the closest species I could find, and is in the WA area. I'd never heard of it before, but the pics I've seen seem close. Great shot of this pretty butterfly.
Oh my, this is gorgeous!
Love the composition, nice DoF and great detail on the butterfly.
Great POV and Detail.
(I looked and couldn't ID it either)
