Back Yard Pics

Well, it's Monday, Memorial Day - and tomorrow it's back to work. This morning I took some photos of tiny butterflies and a tiny bee in my back yard. That's the extent of my photos this weekend.

These little butterflies are the kind you would hardly notice. They were lighting on weeds in the grass which will be mowed shortly. Until those weeds flower again, the tiny butterflies will have to depend on some other bloom, although it will only take a day or two before the weeds flower again.
The first tiny yellow butterfly is called a "Dainty Sulphur". It is common out west and in Florida.
The next butterfly is called a "Gray Hairstreak". It is common throughout the lower 48 states. It is also tiny - I didn't even notice it until I was sitting on the ground waiting for the Dainty Sulphurs to land. Then, all of a sudden, I noticed this little Gray Hairstreak just sitting quietly on a little yellow flower.
And finally, there was also a tiny bee. Once again, if I hadn't of been sitting on the ground, I never would have noticed him either. I took a few shots of him:

That's all folks until later......
