The highlight of my day today was seeing this American Lady in my garden. She (or he) seemed interested in the pink dahlia flowers that I had just moved from the patio and put out in front of the house. None of the other butterflies have shown interest in this flower so far. The bees didn't appear too interested in it either. As soon as I saw the American Lady, I ran outside with the camera. She moved from the dahlias to the coreopsis, and then just like that she was gone. This is the second sighting of an American Lady in my garden. I was glad I was quick enough with my camera this time in order to take a photo and make an identification.
Besides the American Lady, I saw some Cabbage Whites sampling the different flowers, but I didn't get any photos of them today. I also saw several Skippers and the Funereal Dusky Wing. They were mostly on the coneflowers and coreopsis. I continue to see what I believe is an Orange Sulphur fluttering about the courtyard, although it never seems to stop long enough or come by my bungalow for a long enough time to get a picture.
