Rock and butterfly: a small white and dark brown butterfly rests on a piece of breccia in our garden. Volcanic rock fragments, subangular to rounded, sit in an iron-oxide-rich matrix, probably hydrothermal in origin.
The rock is from northeastern Idaho; the butterfly is from eastern Nevada.
A good side view of the butterfly, which is now on one of the marigolds.
This same butterfly is now about to fly away from its zucchini leaf, because the camera lens has gotten too close for its comfort.
