I saw lots of Painted Ladies today, especially on the Verbenas. The pics in my documents are so small, I couldn't tell if this was one that showed several on the plant at once. I'm only seeing one now.
I previously posted that there are no insects on my Fireworks Goldenrod. Well, today they were a buzz with several kinds of bees, wasps, and of course, Painted Ladies. It was hard to get pics of them, though, because I couldn't find them while looking through my viewfinder. I am looking to get a different camera. I did capture a close up of this bee.
It's not a good shot, but there is a wasp on the upper part of this photo.
This is Sweet Autumn Clematis, on the deck in the back yard.
A skipper of some kind on a marigold in the veggie garden I got from someone on Freecycle:
The skipper and a kind of butterfly in the veggie garden I've not seen in the yard before (a close up is in the next photo):
From what I can tell in my book, this is a female Checkered White. I saw a male flying around, but couldn't get a picture of it. They flew around together off and on, as well.
Back to the front yard, the Sulfers weren't very cooperative today.
The Silver Spotted Skipper was also uncooperative today. I haven't seen as many of these around as I did earlier in the summer.
I think this is a Cabbage White.
