Riverside Place: West Coast Lady Butterfly

Photo: Jonathan Vandiveer, March 10, 2013. A West Coast Lady Butterfly, like so many other butterflies in the neighborhood, seem attracted to flowers in the shades of light purples & pinks.  (Click on photo to enlarge.) 

Look closely and you can see not only its antennae, but its tongue probing the flower's depths, in addition to the feathery like hair on its body.  Enlarged from an iPhone photo.
