Skipper Sipper

I've been wanting to get a pic of these Blackhaw blossoms. I like to have a butterfly with my flowers, if possible. I saw this Woodland Skipper and a Red Admiral on them today. The Skipper turned out to be more photogenic this time.

Thank you for your comments and faves on yesterday's American Lady butterfly!!! :0)
Beautiful!!

You never get just a "plain flower," Carolyn. You always get that added touch of butterfly or moth ...and this is just perfection. That flower is beautiful ... such a "white, white!"
