A Plain-Jane Beauty

The duskywing butterfly is not a beauty.  Other members of the Hesperiidae family have brighter colors, prettier patterns, larger wings.

But catch that Plain-Jane flutterer moments after it has landed on the pink lip of a rain lily bloom and beauty suddenly takes on new meaning.
