More Late Butterflies

We have had cool, rainy weather as of late, but today was sunny and even warmed up a little.  A small number of butterflies were out–we had orange sulfurs, one red admiral, and one skipper of some kind.

I found this battered orange sulfur resting in the grass.

The orange sulfurs were looking for nectar on the New England asters on the edge of my prairie.  I tried to get some photos of the butterflies with the blue sky and clouds in the background.

This butterfly is also badly battered, but I think it is a different individual than before.

I snapped this shot when the butterfly flew off.  The composition is kind of accidental, but I like it.
