Fritillaries and Painted Ladies

American Painted Lady
Variegated Fritillaries and American Painted Ladies joined Buckeyes, Gulf Frits, Dogface Sulphurs and tiny skippers nectaring on Lavender Lantana this afternoon.

I guess I'll never get a photo of a Dogface with wings spread so you can see the dark poodle outline along the wings. They are so fast, and nectar always with folded wings.

Pearl Crescents on gaillardia, earlier in the summer.

I look forward to comments and questions and lively discussion of gardening and related ideas.
