Beth and I took a trip to the butterfly garden at Fairview Farm yesterday to scout for a "Beginner's Butterflies and Dragonflies" trip I'm leading there this weekend. Here are some pics that Beth took.
Cabbage White (Pieris rapae) love is in the air. The one on the bottom is a more yellow variation of this common critter.
A Northern Broken-dash (Wallengrenia egeremet) on some Purple Coneflower.
Pearl Crescent (Phyciodes tharos) hanging out on parsley
Blue Dasher (Pachydiplax longipennis) - a small, common dragonfly of ponds and streams
White Beardtongue (Penstemon digitalis)
