Tattered P. picta

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

 

This butterfly is P. picta (the Painted Crescent).  Its ragged wings have little tears at the fringe, its colors are starting to wane, and its appearance and its name brings to mind a painting with chipping paint.

But still its a beautiful butterfly that perched long enough for me to get a picture before it flitted away.
