Butterflies

5 Aug

My walk the other day was filled with lots of butterflies!

The only monarch picture because they are rudely uncooperative, unlike the swallowtails.

And a couple of Japanese beetles.

Here are a few leftovers of random things that were just for fun.

You can hear buzzing everywhere in the clover patch.

I was waiting for the monarch to open its wings.

When it did, it was to fly away.

Butterfly Wings

I’ve seen lots of butterflies this summer!  It’s nice having a variety as well.

Buckeye

Sadly, this one’s wings are messed up, and it can’t fly.  It seemed to be doing okay for now though.

Orange Sulfur

Common Sootywing

The monarch would not sit still, so I finally decided to try for a flight shot.
