Butterfly Wings Open – Shut

They’ve been called Flying Flowers

While in flight or basking in the sun their colors vibrant

Eastern Comma (Polygonia comma) opened

Yet with wings closed they blend into the landscape appearing to be nothing more than a leaf in the wind

Eastern Comma (Polygonia comma) shut

For others their colors are unmistakable

Monarch opened on Stone Crop sedum

whether at rest or in flight they are indeed Flying Flowers
