Lots of Butterflies Today

It got warm today, and we had lots of butterflies.  I counted 75 on my lunch walk today–probably the highest total for the year.  Most were orange sulfurs, but I saw a monarch, a couple of painted ladies, dainty sulfurs, a single little yellow, some buckeyes, and several skippers.

This orange sulfur was in the prairie tonight.  They are common, but they can still be spectacular.

    Very nice detail in wings. Nice how the common ones can be so interesting when you a chance to take a good look.
