I am glad I thought to take my camera with me.  It is a very short distance but you never know what might show up.

A few years ago, we had a lot of dart butterflies around.  This year, I haven't seen many.  They are about 1 cm long and fly fast.  I was lucky that this one let me take so many photos before it flinched at the pre-flash.  It is best to use no flash or manual flash.

It is hard to tell the species because there are so many that look very much the same.  To be sure of the the I D, you have to take them apart and look with a micro scope.

It moved to a different plant not very far away.

The next picture I took, it got out of the picture after I pressed the shutter and before the camera took the picture.
