These butterflies are as large as Warblers if not larger. They have been in our region for about two years and their numbers continue to grow. You have to be relatively lucky to see them and shoot them, if only because they fly high and fast. Like all butterflies the best time to photograph them is when they are feeding. That said you never know what gymnastics they will undertake. This one seemed to have a particular penchant for hanging upside down.
