Double Frittelaries on Horse Mint
This was taken late afternoon as the sunlight became more angular and interesting. Angular light animates shapes better than other light. I organized these outside the 3rd lines because I feel this disassociates the subjects a bit, making them two singles, rather than a photo of 2.
The Mating Dance
It is prime time here for butterfly photography. I caught this mating pair in many photos capturing their courtship. I like this one the best. It is on my all time 2014 list.

Mourning Cloak at Sunrise, Ponca Wilderness
This beautiful butterfly escaped me for years. This year there seem to be a lot of them around. They are very dark, I had to overexpose a full stop to get the detail in its wings.
Talk about camo. Close those orange wings and this guy is impossible to see.
