A beautiful butterfly while hiking up the Rockies.

I wasn't planning on taking a picture quite like this. I was very fortunate that the gorgeous butterfly cooperated with me! The background of the picture was very bland with the color of the gray rocks. However, the colors of the wings on the butterfly give it a punch of light to dark blue. Not to mention how unique the design of the wings are on the extraordinary insect.
