One of the neighbors on our street has a glorious garden filled with insect-attracting flowers. I've walked down there on a few occasions and was lucky enough to capture some images of these attractive and benevolent insects.
Where possible, I've tried to identify the species.
Eastern Tiger Swallowtail on Blazing Star flower
Least Skipper feeds on a coneflower
Skippers are in their own family, and are much smaller than most butterflies.
Two skippers, possibly the same species, are together on the same flower for just a moment.
