Hidden dragon


This Dot-Tailed Whiteface isn't so much hiding as enjoying the sun on the other side of the milkweed leaf. They are not a shy species; while I took photos of this one, others were flying up to me to feed on the cloud of biting flies I'd attracted. They couldn't make much of a dent, but I was still grateful.
