Basking




We were walking through the woods on Sunday. The day was quite warm, but the ground still damp from the recent rainfall. All of a sudden we can to a small open sunny area and there were a lot of these beautiful little orange and black butterflies fluttering around. I waited until I spotted this one land on a tree and begin to bask in the sun, and then took the opportunity to sneak in for this photo.
