Butterflies Close By

Along with dragonflies, I have been checking out a few butterflies in my area. I recently (last few days) found nice patch of Hemp Dogbane beside a construction site, and so far I have found a few nice butterflies there.

Hemp Dogbane
Hickory Hairstreak

Dion Skipper

Eastern Tailed Blue

Banded Hairstreak

Northern Broken Dash

Wild Indigo Duskywing

One of my highlights this week was finding a small "population" of Common Sootywings, an uncommon butterfly in Ontario. There were about a dozen individuals.
