Default Painted Lady B-fly (FZ150+LC55)

Butterflies are finally abundant here in Los Angeles! They were pretty much missing all summer.

#3




#4 WARNING - Disturbing image!! While I was shooting these Painted Ladies, this praying mantis jumped out of nowhere and grabbed one!

#1 grabbed my "favorite"! Absolutely stunning!

Sad about the butterfly, but the mantis has to survive. I found a beautiful bird in my yard that a hawk had killed; I was very sad, but must remember the hawk also has to survive.
