My butterfly watching/identification hobby has slowed down considerably as Fall progresses. While I do occasionally see one flitting about while driving, or out on the Bay and I can sometimes even identify them, they're very hard to photograph. However, today as I was preparing the acorn post, I stumbled across a Cloudless Sulphur out in the garden:
Actually, the first picture was taken by Georgia a week ago, while the second is one I took today. Cloudless Sulphurs were very common in past years, but not so much this year. While I've seen a few while driving, this is the first chance I've had to get close .
I also saw a Common Buckeye out there, but it wouldn't cooperate.
