Cool butterfly (Milbert's Tortoiseshell) in town

Besides the Carolina Wren that I photographed yesterday on the Canon City Riverwalk, I enjoyed some other treats including another view of an adult Cooper's Hawk soaring across the trail. A Cooper's Hawks has nested actually right over one the trails in recent and I am hopeful it will do so again this year.

This photos are of the other big treat, a very cool butterfly that I believe is called a Milbert's Tortoiseshell. It is certainly beautifully decorated.
