The Red Admiral is one of my favorites! Good pics!

Thanks, Linda. Wasn't exactly sure just where to put them so this seemed like a good place. I was out yesterday and got a few more. Our temps hit the 70s again and there was quite a bit of bf activity. Several Skippers and these...

Thanks, Sheila. Once our weather warmed again, we had quite a few bf in the yard. I don't see a large number of Buckeyes here but I love them too. My late-blooming yellow Buddleja has been very prolific in bloom this year and they are loving it now.

Yes, I thought so for so late in the year. Today is cool and rainy. None to be seen.

Those Red Admiral shots are beautiful, Tee. I don't think I've ever seen one of those before.

I've been releasing American Ladies after raising them. Here's one holding on before it took off.

Shelia,
Buckeyes are fairly new to me too and last year I had quite a few.

Very cool. I've never seen an 8 spotted forester before.
