First butterfly photo of the year! A Red Admiral (Vanessa atalanta) sunning itself on our front sidewalk, even though there is snow in the grass.

Dreaming of summer on this cold, gloomy day. A monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus) on sweet Joe-Pye Weed (Eutrochium purpureum) in the prairie garden last August.

A male fiery skipper butterfly (Hylephila phyleus) on smooth blue aster (Symphyotrichum laeve) in the prairie garden.

A cabbage white butterfly (Pieris rapae) on New England Aster (Symphyotrichum novae-angliae) in the prairie garden.

There's still dragonflies to be seen in October. Here's a blue dasher dragonfly (Pachydiplax longipennis) in the prairie garden today.

A male monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus) on a New England Aster (Symphyotrichum novae-angliae) in the backyard.

This male monarch butterfly let me get so close that I was able to get this detailed shot of his wing. Their wings look like they're woven. So amazing!

This male monarch butterfly spent over 45 minutes on our 7-foot tall New England Aster (Symphyotrichum novae-angliae) in the backyard today!
