Queen

These queen butterflies covered this patch of blue mistflower blooms at Wildseed Farms.

They’re so gorgeous and relaxing to watch!

Queen butterflies are closely related to the monarch butterfly but their wing patterns differ. “When their wings are closed, it’s easier to get confused, because both show black veining underneath. However, Queens lack the black veins on their upper wings and have white spots on their lower wings. Monarch underwings are also a much paler shade of orange. “~lepcurious.blogspot.com

  3. Oh wow… I would love to see that many butterflies of any kind in one place, but these are really beautiful. I won’t take your photo for the weekly collage as I don’t think you wanted me to as some have asked me not to and that is fine too… Michelle from Nature Notes..

Thanks for coming by today and for your kind words. I will visit you as soon as I can. Have a fantastic day and don't forget to smile. ~ Shey
