This Tiger Swallowtail is actually from the in-laws' garden from last week.
This male and female Spicebush Swallowtail appeared to be doing some sort of courtship, the male would flutter his wings essentially in sync with the female. The female didn't fly away but I didn't see a copulation (assuming that's a butterfly reproductive strategy).
The SLR actually allowed flight shots of butterflies, something I never once even considered digi-scoping.
An American Copper perched up, its almond shaped eyes giving it a fair bit of personality, quite unlike the appearance of the Baltimore Checkerspot last year that honestly somewhat grossed me out.
Finally what I assume is an Eastern Tailed Blue from last week. Hazel actually managed to slap her net down on top of one in the path much to her pleasure. It fluttered for a few seconds then dropped back down in the grass and flew quickly away upon removal of the net.
