When the birding gets tough and birders go butterflying.
I find IDing butterflies much harder than birds. And moths next to impossible. But they are beautiful.

I find skippers really tough and the rest not so bad. Even if I can’t identify all of them, watching butterflies is still a fun summer diversion.
Great shots! Beautiful!
I agree that finding butterflies in the middle of the summer is often much easier than finding birds. I love all the different butterflies and moths – I *think* that last one may be a tiger swallowtail.
good shots. the last one is excellent!!!
