Here are a few photos of some that we have seen while out and about on birding trips and here in our own backyard. All photos by Rob.
|Common Buckeye with a damaged wing, but he could still fly!|
|Pearl Crescent, a very small butterfly. (Click on picture for a better view)|
|Great Spangled Fritillary, say that 5 times fast!|
|Eastern Tiger Swallowtail, pic taken last year, but seen in the yard this year also.|
We've been enjoying the butterflies so much we have decided to add to our butterfly bushes and milkweed next year and make an area of the garden devoted to butterfly friendly plants, can't wait!
