This afternoon was pretty good for butterflies. They were out in force.
This was one of a handful of silver-spotted skippers.
I only saw one Delaware skipper, but there were lots of least skippers.
I don’t think I saw any black swallowtails last year. I saw about a dozen tonight, and saw several pairs in mating chases like this.
This orange sulfur has gone to butterfly heaven. The ambush bug that was the likely culprit is still enjoying his supper on the underside of the dogbane flower.
These orange sulfurs were enjoying liquid refreshments at the old watering hole.
And I enjoyed all the action.
