The Eastern tailed blues and the monarchs were especially photogenic. Just as I was about to leave for home, a dragonfly landed about five feet from where I was standing, providing a great view and great photos.

78 degrees and not a cloud in sight. Today was a good butterfly day with a Gray Hairstreak and a mated pair of Fiery Skippers. This was only the second time that I've seen more than a single Fiery. I briefly saw an unknown skipper nectaring on the stiff goldenrod in my hilltop prairie, so I started walking a grid pattern hoping to see it again. I was rewarded with my first-ever Sachem. I managed to get a couple of photos, not the best photos, but good enough for a positive ID. This is my favorite time of year, you never know what might come straying through.

Sunny and upper 70's. Hard to believe it's October. Highlight of the day: The Eastern comma landed on the path about 3 feet from me, then alternately "walked" and flew a few inches at a time, ending up right by my shoe. Then it jumped onto my pant-leg. Lowlight of the day: A hiker who saw me trying to take a picture of my foot walked right on by, scaring the butterfly, so I have no picture of it on my leg. (Maybe she thought I was crazy, or maybe she figured my foot wasn't going anywhere, so why bother to be polite. I'm sure she didn't realize there was a butterfly on my leg.) This photo is right before it jumped onto my pant-leg.

This little garden caught my attention in late August and I thought it might be interesting in October and it was! The Clouded Sulphur was highly unusual as it rarely closed its wings. In fact, this was the first one I had ever seen feed with the wings so open.

You never know what you will see. Yesterday I walked alot where there were lots of asters and saw 3 clouded sulphurs and a moth. Today, nearly the same conditions, different location, I walked very little, and I saw lots of butterflies (for October). The monarch greeted me at 9:00 am when I arrived and was still around when I left around noon. The red chrysanthemums attracted the red admirals and the Peck's skipper (lots of great views, they stayed a long time, I left before they did).
