~ Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #46: Delicate ~ Butterflies ~

All week I’ve contemplated what to post for this challenge. Seeing a Gray Whale that had washed up on the beach because it was starving, had me thinking about the delicate balance of life in our ecosystem. But, those images are stark and difficult to look at, so I’m opting to feature butterflies, delicate and amazing creatures, that are beginning to emerge as spring soughs to summer.

Western Tiger Swallowtail



I see this butterfly in mid-spring in Clark County WA. Have no idea what it is named.

Thank you to Leya for another thought provoking photo challenge!

    Thank you for joining in, Lindy! Love these delicate dancers…and a guess for the last one could be one of the Zygaenidae moths . https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zygaenidae
    They are very beautiful in strong colours.
