A New Butterfly in the Garden
Northern Cloudywing (Thorybes pylades) with a back up of Southern Cloudywing (Thorybes bathyllus). If you compare pictures of the two, it's a tough choice, and both could be found in this area. I already sent these pictures off to Butterfliesandmoths.org for identification (it's a free service).
Georgia also found this little Eastern Box Tortoise up near the pond. Although they may graze a low hanging tomato, they're generally harmless
