Wow...

Not sure if I'm more impressed with the shot or the fact you spotted it

Thanks! I saw it land, but they can be really difficult to spot, if you take your eye off them even after seeing them land.

One time I just saw the general area one of these landed in, maybe 2'x3', and even after looking couldn't find it! Moved around enough in the area, to see if still there, sure enough, it flew off. They can really be masters of camouflage in leaves.

Thanks! Glad the butterfly wasn't too obvious.

Here's how they look with the wings open. Quite a contrast, not at all camo. Harder to get, might have gotten good shots once or twice this summer, or not even that. Just happened to get one last week!

Very good photo showing natural camouflage! So many amazing things to see when we take time and look closely.
