Butterflies

October 23, 2011

There are a lot of pollinators in the garden.  This time of year the butterflies are seeking the sun.

Common Buckeye.  All the butterflies were enjoying the zinnias yesterday.

I think this is a painted lady, though it could be an American lady.

The monarchs always seem to enjoy the larger zinnias also.  They seem to prefer the flowers that are a bit older.  I love the white spots on black.

Red Admiral.  I went out this morning and the butterflies were still in the sunny side of the yard, which this morning was the mums.

Another common buckeye, this time in the mums.

Can you find and identify the three butterflies in this picture?

    You got some good ones. I like the first buckeye one and the monarch shot the best. Thanks for the email as well. Glad you enjoyed the camp videos. Much love…
