Lepidoptera Heaven today.

Took a trip to D'Arbonne NWR and I was in absolute awe. There were so many Lepidoptera members there today that it was overwhelming. They included the following: cloudless sulphur, clouded sulphur, possibly an orange sulphur, giant swallowtail, eastern tiger swallowtail, spicebush swallowtail, fiery skipper and silver-spotted skipper butterflies everywhere. It was heavenly.

I had never seen so many butterflies like that, some of them feeding on the same flowers. It really gave me some ideas for my gardening next spring. The flowers they were drawn to the most were Liatris. Not a bad idea to consider them for nest year.
