I spent some time at Medora Prairie in Warren County today, photographing butterflies, getting my head on straight, and scratching my legs on the raspberries.
I got a good look at a little yellow as I went in.
These common wood nymphs were trying to become more common. The flash distorts reality a little bit here–these butterflies appear to be almost completely black as they fly around in the grass.
There were regal fritillaries. I chased them around a lot and took quite a few photos but never got quite close enough with an unobstructed view to get the picture I wanted.
Butterfly milkweed was abundant, as was black-eyed Susan.
The lead plant was in full bloom as well.
