I love the very bottom of the bottom wings. It reminds me of feathers. She’s beautiful.July 20, 2017 at 2:34 pm #1528002
It is a White Admiral or Red Spotted Purple.L.a.astyanax.
.Ranges La.to E.Coast.There are others,L.a.arthemis.We get the former due to our temperatures.
Here is it as a caterpillar.July 20, 2017 at 3:28 pm #1528003MaryParticipant
Very pretty, Bodine. I’ve been noticing lots more butterflies on my patio this year than years before. They must like the hot weather.July 20, 2017 at 5:38 pm #1528005
This one road around for a break.I took him outside and off it went.July 21, 2017 at 9:49 am #1528014
The iridescence of the wings is so pretty. I get moths here but butterflies are fairly rare. These guys are beautiful.

If you can get a good pic of a big Luna Moth for me please.Live shot. We get them rarely here.July 22, 2017 at 12:21 pm #1528053
I’ve never see a Luna Moth out here. I’m not sure what kind of moth this is but I saved it from drowning in a small pond I had.

I have no idea what type of Dragonfly this is, but she was over 5 inches wingtip to wingtip.

These photos are just enchanting!!
Bodine, I have a beautiful natural shot of a Luna Moth taken by a friend in A2, MI.
As soon as my still down email is fixed will send it over to you.
Beautiful shot with wings extended; taken during daylight hours.
I have never seen one in the wild. My Mom as a child used to catch them at night like fireflies; think Luna Moths are usually nocturnal ??
