The little yellow butterfly

Spied this little yellow butterfly flitting in and out of the grass, grabbed my camera and got photos. Looked up an ID and had to laugh when I found out its name is literally "little yellow" butterfly (Pyrisitia lisa).

Eastern tailed-blue

The day that I photographed this Eastern tailed-blue butterfly (Cupido comyntas) is the first time that I can recall seeing one, and I almost missed it because it was so small and blended in so well with the flowers around it. I'm glad I saw it -- and got photos! Lovely. :)
