Besides birds, I am interested in butterflies too. In fact in the Critters section of Cascade Ramblings you will find 14 different species of butterflies. During our birding hike on Sunday afternoon at Sycamore Grove Campground, these two different butterflies caught my attention. They were involved in a fierce dog-fight, and because of their large size they looked like a couple of hummingbirds involved in a dispute. Once they settled down on the ground to rest I was able to get their photos.
