The butterfly is only a 1/2 inch long and is called "Peck's Butterfly." It's actually a skipper type of butterfly because of the way it flies in short skipping motions. It was hard getting a picture of this kind because they are constantly in motion and extremely fast moving. It's busily working on a white "Zinnia Profusion," a short and spreading zinnia hybrid that did awesomely well in containers as well as attracting lots of these little guys.
As my camera is only a simple point and shoot, I was pretty happy to get these photos. And feel a little more assured that Spring is coming soon..!
