The thing about butterflies, to me, is that I don't know the first thing about them other than that they are very pretty and very majestic creatures. The emerge from a chrysalis. And .. well.. my knowledge ends there. I'm sure there are various categories of butterflies, and I'm sure they have a very complex taxonomy. To me they're all just pretty.
This one butterfly posed for me for awhile. I say "posed" when really I mean he stayed in the general vicinity for awhile. Butterflies rarely hold still. It required some patience to get these photos.
Ultimately the butterfly flew off and I sat my butt down on this bench to leaf through the pictures I just took. Yes, I took a picture of the bench, too.
