Lovely shots,Tommy. Looks, like one had an encounter with a birds, it lost a big chunk of it's wing. They are beautiful butterfly!

I can't wait for my butterfly bush to open it's buds, I saw a white admiral and a Great-spangled fritillary last year on it. I see the Fritillary fly around in the yard, but it never stop anywhere yet.
