Mourning Cloak Butterfly
Mourning Cloak Butterfly at Sunrise
There seem to be a lot of Mourning Cloak Butterflies around this year. Lately I have seen quite a few near our home bordering the Ponca Wilderness. I think it is a pretty good addition to your butterfly collection.
If you want to get detail in that very dark wing you need to overexpose in most situations. I don't think this species is rare, but it is not common around my home. Maybe all the rain this year has changed things.
