Nature Notes - Butterflies and Lilies!

I thought that orange lilies from my yard would compliment the three different types of orange and black butterflies that I have photographed lately! These were all photographed in Ohio.



The butterfly at the top right is the Red Admiral.

The second butterfly in the second row is the Eastern Comma.

The big one at the bottom is the Tawny Emperor.


I had so much fun identifying these with a site that I found. You check off boxes that match the characteristics of the butterfly and - Presto! - they tell you what it is!




I have prepared this post so as to participate in Nature Notes over at RamblingWoods.com. Click on the link and check it out! Its a great meme, and the RamblingWoods.com site itself is a great place to ramble around!
