An American Snout resting on my car antenna, end of July.
These butterflies LOVE my privet bush flowers. Right now, it's resting on my Rose - upside down.
Puddling on some pool water - on the concrete. There was a pair fluttering around the pool.
American Snout, mid July, west KY, USA
This one landed near my foot by my stairs. No attempt to hide. Sipping moisture around rocks.
He showed no fear. Several times it flew very fast, then returned to the same spot.
See sunflower seed for size compairson. It continued to returne to the same spot.
