On my way to 15 butterfly pics in '15

It occurred to me recently that I have taken several butterfly pictures this summer.  Why not shoot for 15 different species?  I would have to take pictures of 5 more butterflies (if I count my rather blurry shot of the zebra swallowtail).  That's doable.
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!

  1. There is so much beauty in the butterfly, you can't ignore them. From Florida on my fire, not funny.
