Butterfly 9-8-10 by Tailgun2009 Butterfly 9-8-10 by Tailgun2009
Sorry the quality lacks but I was photographing birds and squirrels with my 300mm lens and this butterfly landed about 3 feet from me on my patio and didn't stay long so I couldn't change lens but I think its a beautiful butterfly anyway.

This is a really great shot!! Just in case you were curious this is a Red Spotted Purple Butterfly =) Crazy name I know but a bunch of these live near my house and after seeing a few of them and being completely stunned by their beauty I scoured the internet to find their name. Took a few hours of searching but by chance I found it. It's always such a treat to see these guys when I'm outside, they're beautiful!
