Recent Butterflies

The last couple of days has been very hot with strong winds.  The winds make the butterflies less likely to fly around like they normally do.  When they do take to the wing they are obviously bothered by it.  They are also more difficult to photograph with the strong wind.

Still, they can be found and I have been able to take a few photos.  This is a cabbage white.

This is a meadow fritillary.

I saw a few fresh painted ladies today.

These least skippers landed on the leg of my shorts, making for an interesting photographic experience.

Nothing very rare, but all fun!
