Some recent butterflies around the yard

Never pass up an opportunity to photograph an Eastern Tiger Swallowtail. That’s what I say. This one is has been around the bush a few times. It’s looking a little tattered.

I found this Banded Hairstreak in the shadows on a milkweed plant. He’s looking a bit tattered too.

I think that this is a Delaware Skipper.

A stunning collection! Love the patterns and colours on their wings! But I wonder how the wings manage to get tattered?
