Nature Challenge-Day 2

karner3

Dear Friends, this butterfly is less than an inch in size and on a windy day like today, they only fly if they are disturbed.  So the photo plan is to walk (or drive) until i see one fly up, then try to follow it to its perching spot.  This is a Karner Butterfly and is identified by the blue iridescent spots above the orange on the back of the hind wing.  Confused? they are present in Crex but not in great numbers so hunting is necessary. The image below shows the blue spots a bit more clear, the light has to be just right  til Tomorrow MJ
