Agraulis vanillae

I found two butterflies of this type when I accidentily stumbled upon the patch of Maypops along some railroad tracks...I watched as they aggressivly attacked two Eastern Tiger Swallowtails that tried to enter the area...The two much larger butterflies fled without even so much as the slightest attempt at resistance...It was quite enteresting as I had never seen butterflies become aggressive before that day...

I think this is really good! I love the clarity and sharpness. The butterfly is a Gulf Fritallary (maybe).
