Bees and Butterflies

Tonight I'm posting some of my favorite butterfly photos.  Some are old and some are new.  I mainly wanted to organize them all in one place.  The butterfly population is down this year for some reason.  We hardly had any bees either, until today.  After the rain, they discovered the jelly.  Hopefully we will get more butterflies before the summer is over also.

Here are a couple moths that I don't know the name for.  Anyone who knows, please let me know.
