Cabbage Whites Mating On Seed Head
Not moths - their antenna aren't feathery. This is a male and female mating. Cabbage White's are an invasive (and very plentiful) species.
Species: Pieris rapae (Cabbage White)

Western Tiger Swallowtail Drinking
I was shocked to see this butterfly stop and sit. It was pretty early in the morning and there weren't a lot of flowers around, but I was really surprised by my luck.
Species: Papilio rutulus (Western Tiger Swallowtail)

Satyr Comma Ventral
It's funny that when folded up, the wings are quite camouflaged.
Species: Polygonia satyrus (satyr anglewing)

Red-Base Jezebel
When your 100mm lens gets close enough to really see a butterfly, it is really close to the butterfly. Often the butterfly just flies away well before you get that close. This individual was really patient.
Species: Delias pasithoe (redbase Jezebel)

Common Tiger
I saw four different kinds of "Tigers" today - characterized by the dark black stripes on either a light or orange background.
Species: Danaus genutia (common tiger)

Purple Sapphire
These are small butterflies, but this particular one was very patient with me being close by. It has a beautiful purple dorsal side, but it didn't show it to me.
Species: Heliophorus epicles (purple sapphire)

Lemon Pansy Underside
It's amazing to me how different the underside (ventral view, looking at the animals belly) is from the topside (dorsal, the animals back) of this species. I initially thought this was two species until I reviewed the photos and found I had a series of photos of the butterfly flapping it's wings.
Species: Junonia lemonias (lemon pansy)

Banded Tree Brown
This butterfly really liked this rock. The rock was in the middle of the meadow and lots of people walked by. The butterfly would sometimes take off, only to turn around and return back to almost the same spot.
Species: Lethe confusa (banded treebrown)

Common Five-Ring Dry Season
Another species that has similar looking species living in the same place.
Species: Ypthima baldus (common fivering)
