My yard attracts a lot of butterflies, but not a lot of different ones. There are skippers, cabbage whites, swallowtails and monarchs. I’m so envious of bloggers in other states who have such a variety of butterflies visit them.
While making my daily run to the composter which involves a stop at the butterfly bush, I saw a brand new butterfly.
I ran back for my camera. He was very shy so it was difficult to get a good shot. I’ve been trying to ID this butterfly. It’s some kind of fritillary. I’m just not sure which one.
If you click on this one to enlarge it, you’ll see a monarch on the same flower. My butterfly bush has a steady stream of monarchs taking a nectar break while they migrate south.
