Caught a few pics of this pretty Diana Fritillary visiting my garden late yesterday afternoon.. Was proud of myself to be able to look up and identify her as well :) Thanks to my new butterfly book!

Thanks for the compliments :) He was gorgeous, only wish I would have been able to get a decent one with his wings spread open...

Thanks for posting the photos. You're so lucky! That one is still on my "I hope to see one in my garden someday" list.
