White Admiral

Limenitis arthemis arthemis, a White Admiral butterfly, taken in Bedford, NS just minutes after leaving its chrysalis (a moment which I, alas, missed).

I love this second one, where she is still hanging off the empty chrysalis - check out those eyes! And she's such a Marilyn, too (always ready for her close-up).
