I don’t often speak latin, but when I do… This is the “Common” Leopard Butterfly, which is indeed very common in West Virginia, but very rare out here in California where I live. This photo was taken among the flowers that grace the side of the parking lot at Valley Falls State Park, just outside of Grafton, West Virginia.  I followed this one around for several minutes before being able to get a good shot. It was worth it. So beautiful.
