Our cherry tree has lots of fruit on it this year–Pat has picked a bunch for pies. Still, there is ripening fruit and over-ripe fruit. And butterflies.
This is called a question mark butterfly, named for the silver marks on its side.
This is a northern pearly-eye.
This is a deer fly. It is not a butterfly. Butterflies do not bite. Deer flies bite like hell.
But mostly they fly around your head and don’t land. When they do land, they don’t bite. Until they do.
This was also in the cherry tree.
As was this hackberry emperor.
