19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Polydamas Butterfly on Pink Porterweed

Since the lock down I have been spending much more time in my backyard instead of traveling in the field. I have set up my yard with bird and butterfly friendly plants and have all kinds of activity because of it. This Polydamas Butterfly is a coveted and rare visitor so I was excited when it paid a visit.
