A Pyrenees butterfly

While we’ve been travelling in a foreign (to us) land we’re kept an eye open for sights that we wouldn’t normally see. While high in the Pyrenees Mountains we came across this very beautiful butterfly. Usually butterflies close their wings once they land making it difficult to get a snapshot of their most beautiful aspect. But for some reason this one stayed poised long enough for Vince to get a nice shot of it. I thought it was very pretty with its delicate colouring.

It is gorgeous! I love the body - it looks like fur. Poised on that beautiful purple flower makes the perfect setting for it. I bet he could sell that picture to National Geographic. They always have fantastic pictures taken by cameras. Not that he would.

@JudyEv That is a fantastic looking butterfly. I have seen many in my years of travel, but I have never seen one like that before. I did grow up in France when I was younger. I guess we never visited the places you are visiting now. Plus, I was 13 when I left France. So this might be another reason I never saw one before. Kids notice certain things but overlook other.
Its great that you have been spending time with nature. Most of my time is spent at Home, Office, back to home, back to Office, and occasionally those Malls, whose shiny and sanitized environments call us to spend more and more, and leave our pockets much more lighter!
