Red-Spotted Purple by shadowfire-x Red-Spotted Purple by shadowfire-x
I love these Red-Spotted Purples.. they're so gorgeous when the sun hits that iridescent blue. That iridescence looks different (and kinda cool, I think) under a strong camera flash.

Thanks! I really like them as well. I'm a fan of the pipevine swallowtails we find around here =3

You know, I don't think that's a red-spotted purple. They don't have tails. Looking it up now, it's actually a pipevine swallowtail. ^^ beautiful shot, though. I love that metallic bluish on the hindwing.

You're Welcome!

I'm suprised it didn't flutter away at that close. =D It must have been very calm.
