Great Clouded Sulpher shots along with the asters and that other critter! Looks like you have two female CS and one male. I'm using Kaufman's Butterflies of North America it's probably one of the best guides for identifying butterflies. Our asters are just about done and were covered with a heavy frost this morning.

Your universe is pretty beautiful!

Thanks Eve.
I had a copy of Kaufman's. My youngest daughter was visiting and took an interest in butterflies. I gave her the copy. I should really replace it.

Hi Laura, good to have you stop by.

Stunning shots Steve!! Our butteflies are just starting to show here, so there is going to be lots of leg exercise for me chasing after them again. LOL!!

Great shots, Steve. Despite the distance and the fact it's probably been much cooler up your direction, similar species are out and about in the Ozarks.

I'm pretty sure the other critter is a Yellow-collared Scape Moth.

Love these photos, like Eve, the asters around here are all done blooming. The roadsides and fields are just covered with aster seed heads.

Thanks Marvin!
Hi John, we still have plenty of Asters on Cape Ann, but the last two days have been seasonably cold.

Wow, these butterflies are gorgeous! Can't say I ever recall seeing them in our area. I just love the everything about them.

Of course the black and orange one is a little freaky . . . but I know Joan liked it ; )

They are all beautiful but that first one is exquisite.
