Painted Ladies, Point Lobos State Reserve
 

This provocatively named pair of beautiful orange butterflies has the widest range of any species in the world, common throughout all of North America and Mexico. They were among the delights of photographing at Point Lobos State Reserve, located on the coast just south of Monterey, California. Use of a telephoto lens and a large aperture separates the butterflies from the background.
