After Watering

I am watering the new plants and seeds.
After I move my sprinkler I wait a few minutes.
I know the butterflies will come for water.
The Tawny Emperor is a favorite food of the Cardinals and the Wrens.
It hides well in my yard.
Our mulch is leaf mold compost.

I wonder if each butterfly wing is unique like a finger print :-) Beautiful pics.

Dear Chris,
I wonder too...
I do know in some species there are variations.
Thanks! These are very pretty little butterflies.

I vote for birds to leave Tawny Emporor alone. I hope they get their fill on your feeders.

She is a pretty little thing.

Dear Sprite,
I keep telling all the birds there are other tasty bugs besides butterflies!
She is pretty.
