Great Burnet With Butterfly
The flower is quite striking. The butterfly was a nice touch. I thought this was a European Skipper at the time, but it quite clearly isn't.

Tree Nymph Eating From Flower
I don't add species to animals that are in captivity. While this particular species was flying around outside the zoo, I believe this picture was taken from inside their butterfly exhibit.

Four Spotted Skimmer
shot f 14 trying to get enough depth of field to get from one wing to the other. Shot 1/60th of a second at 400asa. Still missed it - the focus point was probably the stem so I lost the wing closer and the bug is blurry. Good try, but fail.

Orange Winged Grasshopped
There were about two dozen of these flying along the trail close to the highway. It's hotter over there because there aren't trees. These do look like butterflies when they are flying.
