It’s amazing that there are still butterflies flitting around going from flower to flower like it is still summertime. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
We saw this beautiful Orange Sulphur butterfly and this Cabbage White (2nd photo) just this week on the trail at Fort Hill.
Have you seen any butterflies lately? Just amazing that there are still butterflies and still lots of wildflowers blooming!
I was so surprised to see not one, but two of these beautiful Little Copper butterflies on the trail by Coast Guard Beach. I hadn’t seen very many butterflies this past summer and was surprised they were still around. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
Little Copper butterflies are very small with a wing span of only about an inch. Have you ever seen one? Beautiful little butterfly, don’t you think?
This American Painted Lady was hanging around our Zinnias for quite a while a few days ago. The flowers are still blooming and the butterflies are still here. Amazing!
I kept seeing this butterfly flitting around and it finally landed on the paver stone by the garden full of Zinnias. He posed there for quite a while before he flew away.
And then in the evening, I saw it again out in our yard resting on a dead leaf on the ground. Not the perfect photo op, but truly a beautiful butterfly!
This beautiful Eastern Tiger Swallowtail butterfly has been flitting around our yard for days. It always flies so high up in the trees and never lands on anything. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
And then, just as I walked out the door to feed the Bluebirds, he flew to the top of my little Dogwood tree where he stayed for quite a while.
You can see how different they are when their wings are folded. Have you seen any Tiger Swallowtails yet this spring? Beautiful butterfly… love those blue spots!
