We are now well into June and butterflies of all types are crossing the lawn to check out the butterfly weed, the Echinacea, the lavender, the primrose, etc.
Below are a few of my visitors these past two weeks.
|Checkered White---Pontia protodice|
|One of the skippers, a little blurry.|
|American Lady ? a little tattered from the storms.|
|Spicebush Swallowtail---Papilio troilus|
|Zebra swallowtail---Eurytides marcellus|
|Black swallowtail---Papilio polyxenes|
|Great spangled fritillary(?)---Speyeria aphrodite|
They really do compete with the blossoms!
