[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I would like to wish all of my friends here on TN a very "Happy and Prosperous New Year". May you continue to post your photos and learn from others about our wonderful world and all it's awesome and interesting creatures, plants and natural scenery.

Many of the smaller orange and black butterflies seem have similar markings, and are sometimes hard to correctly identify. After searching my guide books and many internet images I believe this photo is of a Pearl Crescent, which I captured while in Oklahoma this summer.

This tiny butterfly has a wingspan of one and a quarter to one and a half inches, and lives in open areas, including meadows, fields, and roadsides.

They range from S. Alberta east to New England and south to Florida, Gulf Coast, Texas, and S. Arizona.

Beautiful butterfly and great photo Ron! Excellent composition, wonderful colors and impressive sharpness. The colorful BG is fantastic. Beautiful and interesting plant too!
My best wishes for a Happy New Year

Amazing to think this is such as small butterfly. Your close-up makes her seems much larger.
Excellent detail and good background.
Nice setting and colours
