Butterfly

Another Buckeye. This one was captured on September 18, 2021 in front of the Annapolis Branch Public Library. This photo is about twice its actual size. Given its size and the pristine condition of its wings, it has probably just emerged from its cocoon, also known as a chrysalis.

After yesterday’s exciting offering of two Fiery Skippers caught in flagrante delicto, today’s photo may seem a bit humdrum. If that is the case, I apologize; however, I think this photograph has its merits. I like the shadows on the Monarch’s wings. Also, if you look closely, you can see the tip of this butterfly’s proboscis. That’s a rare sight. Additionally, I like the contrast of the pink background against its wing.
