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!)
