The butterflies in Rocky Mountain National Park are getting more numerous and more active. I’ve seen quite a few different species in the last few days…it’s just catching up to them to get that photograph that’s sometimes hard!
This Common Ringlet butterfly is about 1 1/2″ with ocher above and below and an eyespot near the tip of its forewing. Its habitat is grassy meadows and prairies.
I’ve seen quite a few Common Ringlets in the meadows lately. Have you ever seen one? Pretty, don’t you think?
