I've really been making myself get some things done outside because I go back to school in only two weeks!
I am happy to see I still have butterflies as the neighbors sprayed for something that killed many grasshoppers. But there are still hundreds out back and in the pasture grass. :-(
This monarch was quite happy in the veronica.
I just couldn't get it with its wings open!
Sarah took a great picture several years ago that she framed for me and hers is so clear. The white dots on the body are just cute.
I've also seen the usual painted ladies, the sulfur butterflies, and some tiny black ones that I've never seen before. Plus my favorite~the black swallowtail. I have lots of parsley that I plant just for it to lay eggs on.
