Saturday Adventure

We had a lovely adventure today! We had friends invite us, and another couple, to go exploring on some of their land in the mountains. I'll be showing lots of photos, of course, but I'm in a hurry right now so I'll just show you three little creatures we met as we started our hike there.








Are they not beautiful?
I couldn't believe they just fluttered around and
then obliged us by landing and posing.

They were all so pretty!
Does anyone know what kind they are?

The butterfly in the first photo is a Mourning Cloak. I think the last one is an Admiral. No idea what the middle one is, though. I want to get a good butterfly identification book because we see so many in the mountains, and I only know what a few of them are. Love butterflies! This summer, while camping in the Big Horns, there were even more butterflies than usual.

Whoa! I had no idea we had a butterfly expert in the family! That has come in quite handy, thank-you. I the the Admiral is just the perfect name for that last one.
