orchid plant from another post in which i bemoaned the fact that i don't know much about orchids and have never been too successful at promoting re-bloom on the kind i buy for decoration in my house. to my delight, today, i discovered it has two stems of buds and blooms -- i thought it worthy of another photo.
this little fella is (maybe) an inch tall. it is so teeny that it was hard to tell its markings until i uploaded the photo. i believe its identity is a cassius blue. it was very fast and moved constantly but i waited a couple of minutes while snapping some flowers this morning and it landed right next to me. i will share later a similar photo of another tiny butterfly i captured while hiking on whiteside mountain.
a sampling of what i found still blooming...
palmetto dates (covered with ants)
caladiums & impatiens
