Saturday Evening Creature Feature, Common Wood-nymph

Some butterflies have cool names such as Admiral, Viceroy, Skipper, Satyr, and Elfin for example. Here is the Common Wood-nymph. I’ve been out several times this year and have seen them energetically flitting about the meadow/woodland boarders. It was getting a bit frustrating as they would not settle down. I did manage to snipe this one.

As luck would have it, once I got one in the can, I was able to catch a pair doing the bird’s and the bees thing.

Two’s company, three’s a crowd.
