A female Pearl Crescent butterfly taking a rest on a beautiful Black-eyed Susan.
We have all kinds of insects; flying and crawling, all over our flowers. It's a great time of the year to spend walking the yard and taking it all in.
*It's quite difficult to tell Pearl Crescents and Northern Crescents apart. So, it is possible that my identification is incorrect. However, since I've taken this photo in Massachusetts, where only Pearls are present, I'd feel fairly confident about my ID.
