Yellow Butterlies and Moths

Today when running errands I went by the Winnie Palmer Nature Reserve and spied four Yellow Tail Butterflies and three small yellow moths with a purple spot at the top of the large wing and two smaller dots of  purple on the lower smaller wing.  I need to look the species up in The Butterflies and Moths of Western Pennsylvania Guide.  It is a fun thing to identify butterflies and moths.  Here are some links to check out:

Butterfly

How lovely you are to view sitting upon a throne of pink flowers.

Climbing upon the blossoms, seeking nectar to eat.

 Gathering strength for the long journey ahead.

Off to Mexico you go.

Wintering in the firs.
