I like them. I believe that is a type of moth... don't butterflies keep their wings up when they land?

I've never seen a moth like that one before! Wonderful pattern.

Looks like you have quite a garden!

dave,

some very nice butterfly shots. By the way, what kind of flowers (white) are they perched on?

Dave,

Budd...%^$#,
gotcha.

Now that you gave me the first syllable, I think it's also called butterfly flower or something like that

With my shrinking memory, I actually had also taken a picture of the purple variety some years back on the island of Kauai. No butterflies tho.



Thanks.
