One day you wash up on the beach, wet and naked. Another day you wash back out. In between, the scenery changes constantly.

Butterfly du Jour
I'd almost given up hope of finding any new butterflies since we returned from Italy. The weather has been cold and rainy and I haven't seen much visiting the few flowers that are left. However, as I was walking between buildings at work today I saw this one, and hustled back for my camera.
I had a tougher time getting a good shot of the under side of the wings; the butterflies (there were two there) were pretty determined to bask with their wings flat. They have a mottled underside, much like the Painted Ladies and Buckeyes that I've also photographed.
They were all attracted to fallen Persimmon fruits that were all over the ground.
