It's easy to disregard the natural world when you live in most cities - the only "nature" you see on a regular basis is that domesticated, controlled kind that exists at the suffrance of city planners. Even then, if you look carefully you can find it, and the best times are when you never expected to. It was Randy McDonald who first noticed this butterfly landed on the flowertop, and he's likely got some good pictures of it from different angles. As it is, I've got no idea what kind of butterfly it is, but - it's the sort of picture I don't often get.
