We still are seeing butterflies.
This lovely variegated fritillary was a bit worse for wear.
I was surprised to find out that one of the host plants for the caterpillars is our local climbing milkweed.
Here’s another visitor:
We don’t see duskywing skippers as often as some of the other skippers.
This one is enjoying nectar from a rush milkweed flower.
Notice that duskywings perch with their wings outstretched, not folded like other skippers. They do have the characteristic hooks at the tips of their antennae, though.
Have you spotted any butterflies this week?
