Eye candy. Our American Copper butterfly is perched on Orange Hawkweed (Hieracium aurantiacum) in the late morning at Raccoon Creek State Park in western Pennsylvania.
Awash with oranges and yellow, this image soothes, as watching a well organized fish tank soothes.
America has been so accepting of countless immigrants and both the butterfly and the wildflower may have been introduced centuries ago.
Examine our other posts of American Coppers (Lycaena phlaes). There is something about them that evokes such pleasant, calming, and positive thought.
