A mating pair of Viceroy butterflies flew past us yesterday. The larger female was towing the male around. They settled for a while on our side deck.



You can see the coiled proboscis (feeding tube) on the butterfly on the left in the photo above.

Nice photo, MP -- did you get that close, or is this a crop of the photo?
