Black-Eyed Butterfly by foreverlong926 Black-Eyed Butterfly by foreverlong926
This butterfly was willing to be photographed a lot today. I managed to get this great shot of him on a black-eyed susan.

**Update 3/16/11 Uploaded the high res image (finally) and made border much smaller **

OOH! NICE shot of a Red-Spotted Purple. And the flower it's sitting on gets a big thumbs up too. :D *faves* It's very rare for me to see one of these here in Maine...I got one for half an hour and the pics were more of a "photo or it didn't happen" kind of thing. ^^; Thanks for sharing. ^^

I could be wrong, but i believe that is a "red-spotted purple (Limenitis arthemis)"
