Autumn Flutterbys and More

Been reading Winnie the Poo with Talon, hence the flutterbys.
So many interesting butterflies and moths in the garden this autumn. Sometimes several dozen at a time, moths mainly, covering the basil and lavender. Who knew autumn was the season for a butterfly garden?!

Unusual and pretty...

Underneath the wings are metallic silver.

Became part of Talon's catch and release program-- I tried to get the silver to show up-- it looked just like foil!

Cucumber beetle-- no curcurbits to nibble...

Petite-- the wingspan is only 1 inch

Talon's ladybug!

Moths don't seem to mind the spent flowers

New flowers are nice too
