Cloudless Sulpher

Cloudless Sulpher {Phoebis sennae} - often called a Common Sulpher -- Kaufman's Field Guide states "flight is often strong and rapid - So true ! Had to wait quite awhile for it to settle long enough to get off some shots - Worth it, though ! 4 PiP

Seasonal Tree --- Fall 2021

- used to do a Tree for each season - stopped when the older tree dropped too many needles - and I got tired of trying to get the decorations - from behind the doors on the right side of the Hutch - searched for a smaller tree - one easier to assemble - it has taken a few years - now, instead of 7 1/2 ft tall - this is 6 1/2 ft tall - not as wide so the Hutch doors will open - and decorations can be put on the backside of the tree - so, 2021 Fall - then will go to 2021 Holiday - and any others that might occur in-between seasons 2 PiP

Monarch In Motion ..

- after a very slow year of finding butterflies - on the 29th September 2021 - Down the Road - at NotMyGarden - 3 [ three ] Monarchs were on Mexican Sunflowers - a few Skippers - but what amazed me were the Monarchs - most of North Carolina has had very low counts - regardless of the types of butterflies seen or the are of the State - they will be recorded in this site by years end Butterflies of North Carolina by Harry LeGrand and Tom Howard auth1.dpr.ncparks.gov/nbnc/a/accounts.php 5 PiP

Great to see you !

Variegated Fritillary ( Euptoieta claudia ) - 1st of this year -2021- Usually land on a flower and stay put - Enjoying a feast - Not this one - This flutterby went from flower to flower - Sometimes landing - At times - not - Still did my usual 'butterfly hunt mode' - Don't follow them - All of them are faster than us - Observe the flowers they land on - Plant yourself nearby - They return - At times you can get bunches of shots from one butterfly & a flower - Without moving the camera much - My camera has the option of totally turning off any sounds - Though I know of cameras where it can only be turned down - Have always thought the designer of 'not turning off sound' - Didn't know the first thing about butterflies, wading birds, etc. - Shall we hold classes for them ? 3 PiP
