Small Brown Butterflies

 I've been noticing little brown butterflies on the fleabane.  I think they are Northern Crescents. Interesting black markings.

This one was on the Painted Daisy and I think it is a Pearl Crescent. It's also small, only about 1 1/2" wide.
On my walk, I also saw a Great Spangled Fritillary and maybe a Baltimore Checkerspot, but alas, I didn't have my camera with me.  When will I learn to always take the camera with me?!
Check out for some really nice butterfly and dragonfly photos.

  1. There really do seem to be more butterflies around than usual this year. These are lovely pics of the ones you saw. And I hope you get to see the Great Spangled Fritillary again when you have your camera with you. Would love to see a photo of that.
