I finally saw an atala butterfly in our yard last week. Of course I didn't have my camera on me but this morning she was sitting on the coontie and kindly waited until I ran inside and got my camera.

I spotted several of these little guys (and girls) when taking Cleo for a walk yesterday. I went back to get my camera to grab a few photos so I could identify them. A year ago I would have thought they were just little moths flying about in the grass. (Thank you David Suzuki!)

What a great week to celebrate wildflowers as so many are in full bloom! Our wild flower garden is just that, wild with flowers. I hope you have some wildflowers in your yard, on your walk or in some nearby parks to enjoy!

A year ago I wouldn't have thought that I'd be butterfly gardening but once I learned about the Monarch's threat I started planting milkweed, and it has snowballed into more native gardening and searching for butterfly host plants and all with great rewards ..... butterflies in the garden! We have started to record the different ones we see and I am trying to have my camera with me more often when I'm outside so I can catch a shot of them. Some I can only identify with the help of a photograph like this little guy, Cassius Blue. He is so similar to the Miami Blue and Ceraunus Blue that it took quite some time of studying my various photos to determine which he/she is.
