A day for butterflies

Today, I walked down the street from a modest cabin in western North Carolina.  It's a walk I do often regardless of the season.  This time of year Goldfinch that gather in a field to forage on thistle or other food.  They also sit and sing on fence posts or on any number of shrubs or other plants. I had seen them just a few minutes earlier as I walked along the road, but as fate often has it they were scarce when I had camera in hand.  Instead, there were butterflies.  Lots of them.  They floated from flower to flower and I trained my camera on them.  I photographed several species, but this was my favorite of the morning.
