On a Better Day for Butterflies

Today was a good day for butterflies–certainly better than yesterday.  I spent some time walking the prairie and the roadside and found some good ones.

This is a Peck’s skipper, Polites peckius.

A nice silver-spotted skipper, Epargyreus clarus.

And finally, a gorgone checkerspot, Chlosyne gorgone.

It was a very good day for butterflies.
