Sunday Photo # 001

i'm not sure what the flower is, but the butterfly is known as a Queen (Danaus gilippus). the photo was taken in the Woodland Park Zoo's butterfly house a few year's back. as i recall, i was sweating more than a little on this late-June afternoon as the temperature inside is kept artificially-high so the butterflies don't spend all of their time conserving energy by sleeping on the otherwise not-so-photographic walls of the house.

it remains one of my favourites to this day.
