The white acts as a good contrast though. The patterns are so lovely on this Hackleberry (what a lovely name..!)

The Beauty is in the Insect.
I know what you mean, here in Denmark most insects seem to be on vacation in other corners of our little lump of rock we call home.

It seems to have been all over the world that way this year. Odd weather patterns and absence of species !

Who needs a pretty background when you have a beautiful butterfly to focus on? I think actually it highlights the butterfly beautifully.

It was probably a male, so that's the reason he didn't land on any flowers - he was looking for a woman! Guys will be guys.

This species seems to like this kind of thing to settle on. Strange as I would think it made it more of a target to be eaten !
