[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this image on the McNeil Pt. Trail on Mt. Hood. I could not find the name of this butterfly in my book so any information would help. I took this with my Tamron 70-210mm F3.5 Telephoto lens.
I think this butterfly is in the Fritillary Family?

Very beautiful butterfly!
A bit soft on focus, but shows the beauty!
A bit OE too.
Never saw it too.

Hello Steven,
I like your macro; yes, a bit soft in focus, but great colours and contrast. It's a checkered spot butterfly, from genus Euphydryas, fam Nimphalidae.

Regards, Petru
