Here are some photos of some of the usual butterflies that have been visiting my garden.  I should note that I see a swallowtail stop by every once in a while, but I have yet to get a photo.

Butterfly Garden Notes - June 24, 25 and 30

It's the end of June and I'm seeing the usual suspects in the garden.  The most common to visit my yard are:  Monarchs, Skippers, Duskywings, Marine Blues, and Gulf Fritillaries.  I've seen Cloudless Sulphers and Swallowtails, but have yet to get any photographs.  Here are some photos from last weekend and yesterday afternoon.
