Faded Ladies

I decided to go to Allen’s Pond yesterday, even though I’d been the day before, and I am so glad I did because I saw so much! In addition to the colors, which I just cannot get enough of, I saw all kinds of butterflies – sulphurs, cabbage whites, monarchs, a red admiral, a buckeye, and painted ladies – and sparrow-size sandpipers and a sea gull with a crab.

What’s interesting to me is that I believe these two are both painted ladies, and yet the one is so faded and the other is so bright, it’s like they’re two different butterflies!
