Like last year, December butterflies may be hard to come by.

Part sun and 52 degrees. Red Admiral appeared to be the same tattered individual seen here on Monday. The Comma looked much better. They were out flying for less than 15 min. around 1:30 p.m.

At work today. A real surprise to see the Buckeye after 2 very cold nights this week. I saw 19 degrees driving to work Thursday morning.

Good old "comma corner," an early year and late year hot spot, didn't fail. However, the mosquitoes were unexpectedly unbearable and drove me out of Mac.

This is usually a great late fall place, but it doesn't look like it will be this year as there is no bloom anywhere.

It was a big year for Cloudless sulphurs in my yard so it seems only fitting that it may be last butterfly of the year.

Warmer day brought out what may well be this garden's last butterfly for the year. Red Admiral was drawn to rotting bananas.

Digging out more cannas on a beautiful fall day - low 60's, sunny with winds 5 MPH. First butterfly of the day, Common Buckeye, but the second one was a Sleepy Orange. That was very unexpected. This is the first Sleepy Orange seen here since 11/2 but the 7th sighting this year. I am hoping to have the correct senna for them next year to mate and lay eggs here. Also male and female Cloudless Sulphurs here and the male kept trying to mate. Most of my nectar is either snapdragons or little tiny yellow flowers in the grass. The male Sachem was also in a mating mood. Total of 10 species flying. Images of all. All cats continue.

high 50's, sunny with winds about 10 MPH. Still digging out cannas as we have 10 varieties here in the yard. Almost all other nectar is gone from the frost 2 nights ago. Found a Monarch cat today on tropical milkweed, still have both Common Buckeye & Black swallowtail cats on their host plants. Saw a total of 8 butterflies this afternoon.
