At this time of year, when things become a little quiet on the birding front, I turn my attention to the other things that may be flying around close by. Usually butterflies or dragonflies. Just recently the butterflies have been out in great numbers and I've had great enjoyment trying to find new ones and identifying them as they've fluttered by. Here are some of the more common ones on my local patch.
This is a Large Skipper. This is the first year I've ever seen one.
Small Tortoiseshells seem to be in there hundreds on my patch.
This is a Small White.
I've been looking at butterflies this week so thanks for identifying some of them with such good photos.ReplyDelete
