Butterfly or moth



Yesterday must of been the day of the moth or butterfly, whatever this is. I googled brown and orange moth and butterfly and found something similar in both searches. Oh well, so much for finding out what this is. This one was on the Boxwood plant sunning. There were an abundant amount of them flying around the yard "playing tag."
Fine Art America is holding a contest for its photographers. Five winning photographs will be used in a national television advertisement. I need 250 votes, I have 31. I was hoping

I like your contest photo. It's one of the better ones for sure! Hope you get enough votes. The butterfly is a Red Admiral.

looks like a variation of a monarch..very unusual marking. butterflies or anything that flies is hard to photograph... good job!

I have seen an unusually large population of butterflies this year. I love seeing them.
