These butterflies are so distinctive in their patterning. The butterflies are beautiful and very recognizable.  They are now sponsored by the City of Baltimore MD since these are on the endangered species list. They are revitalizing this beautiful butterfly species known as Euphydas phaeton. Butterfly Weed offers one of the nectars that they love most. Giclee sizes of this work that are not shown can be made to order. If you would like you can have two paintings to frame if you choose the cut this one in half.  I did consider this when I made the composition.
