Here are some butterfly pics from yesterday. The silver-spotted skippers and the common checkered-skipper make numbers 9 and 10.
I saw the silver-spotted skippers mating under a fig leaf.
I found a common checkered-skipper as well as another buckeye on the bitterweed in my neighbor's drive. Somehow, when I look at the bright cheery yellow of bitterweed I feel like a carefree country kid once more. I especially love the colors of the buckeye with the flowers.
Five to go!
