    I've never seen that butterfly in the wild, only in butterfly houses. They're both lovely.

    Very beautiful. Last year, here on the East Coast, we didn't have many butterflies...too much rain. This year has been hot, and we have butterflies everywhere. I've been enjoying them and also the hummingbirds and other critters. (As long as they're not chewing up my plants :-? )
