Gorgeous Black And White Weidemeyer’s Admiral Butterfly At Lily Lake In RMNP

I was at Lily Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park the other day waiting for a beautiful Red Admiral butterfly to open its wings so I could get a good photograph of it. When, along flew this gorgeous black and white Weidemeyer’s Admiral butterfly and landed on the rock right next to it. How lucky is that?

This Weidemeyer’s Admiral butterfly was very accommodating with his wings open the entire time.

Gorgeous, isn’t it? Can you see the little red spots near the bottom edge?

This Common Ringlet butterfly in Rocky Mountain National Park was so camouflaged against this multi-colored rock it was very hard to see.

It blends right in with the rock’s colors, don’t you think?

I chased this Boiduval’s Blue butterfly in Rocky Mountain National Park until it alighted on a Daisy. I was able to get photographs of its outside coloring and underneath coloring. They are both so different.

This Checkerspot butterfly was lazing along Black Canyon Trail on Lumpy Ridge in Rocky Mountain National Park. He’d fly a few feet and then set down and they fly a few feet and then set down….

He seemed to be very content with the little pebbles along the trail.

It was so cool to see a Milbert’s Tortoiseshell butterfly on one of the dirt roads down by the dam at Lake Estes. I had never seen one there before.

Beautiful little butterfly, don’t you think? Love the little blue spots on its wings!
