Kissing butterflies, anyone? Like Korean wedding ducks, these are apparently doing well. Glassberg made an odd comment, "As the Supreme Court has said about pornography, it is difficult to define, but you'll recognize it when you see it." Huh? These are extremely common here, in fact I think it's the one butterfly I see the most. They flutter and "hop" within about 2 feet off the ground through the grasses.

I have so many flower pics, that I thought I'd break it up with some butterflies...
