IDs always welcome! I do not have the field guides to identify these lepidopterans; let me know if you recognize anyone.
Of all the moths I have encountered, this one, found clinging to the stem of a corn lily, is my favorite. Look at that lovely pattern! Look how fuzzy he is!
Look at that face!
Another excellent face.
This was from the end of the season, as you can see from the sorry state of the corn lily leaves.
Butterflies making more butterflies…
The butterflies and the bees both liked these thistles.
Pixar should make a buddy movie about a butterfly and a bee that are friends.
This butterfly was missing a good chunk from both wings—possibly from a close encounter with a hungry bird—but was able to fly anyway.
This one appears to have a large nose…
…except it’s not a nose, it’s – two bunny ears on the front of its face? Help me out, entomologists.
