Yesterday’s Butterflies

Yesterday was a pretty good day and I got a little bit of time to photograph butterflies (as well as a number of other insects).

This least skipper,  Ancyloxypha numitor, was restless and I chased it a while before I finally got some photos.  It was gone soon–I never really did get the view I wanted.

This question mark butterfly, Polygonia interrogationis,  checked out the compost pile, and stuck around even less than the least skipper.

There were several silvery checkerspots, Chlosyne nycteis, and they posed nicely.

    Your insect and arachnid photographs are excellent, I really enjoy seeing them.

    The second butterfly here, the ‘question mark’ is very similar to one we have in the UK called ‘Polygonia c-album’, interestingly ours is another punctuation mark, the ‘comma’.
