Some Common Butterflies

I spent a little time today and on Tuesday taking photographs of butterflies.  I was not in any special habitat, and the butterflies I saw were pretty common.  Still, I had fun doing it.

This was a common buckeye.

This is a dainty sulfur.  I never quite get the photograph I want with these, but this does show the blue on the eye fairly well.

Fiery skippers are common this time of year.  Still, they are pretty little butterflies.

Silver-spotted skippers will soon be gone for the year.  This one was hanging out on the ironweed.
