Another Karner

blue karnerFriends, could not resist showing you one more Karner Butterfly, and endangered specie here in Crex Meadows.  This is a better image in that he is perched on a lead plant flower instead of the usual scat perch and the blue spots on his hind wing are showing their iridescent glow. The light needs to be right for those spots to glow and look like abalone.  The bokeh is also better than the previous image.  til Tomorrow MJ
