A Butterfly of Subtle Beauty

Unlike the Tiger Swallowtail…

…or the Gulf Fritillary…

…both of which are bold and striking…

…the Long-tailed Skipper is a butterfly of subtle beauty.

Doesn’t he look lovely against the pastel petals of this gladiola?

    The Skipper is quite unusual. I like its fuzzy green body. And a very striking contrast to the pink flower, I agree! 💗

    They’re all so beautiful in their own way, and aren’t we blessed to have them share our world!?
