Bernardino Blue [Philotes battoides bernardino] Adult Butterfly Images
These images were taken on 6-3-2005 near Bear Divide ranger station. I had to follow the fluttering pair until they finished their arial ballet and landed on a blossom to mate. It only took them a few seconds to pair-up and sit quite happily for these pictures.
