Some butterflies common in South Eastern Pennsylvania.
These I took recently in the backyard and also the meadow at the barn which has thousands of butterflies.
Above is a Pearl Crescent (I think).
Two Orange Sulfurs dance in the meadow below.

A beautiful Monarch on my zinnia.
This one below looks like a type of cabbage butterfly.

Another pretty Monarch...
"Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you." ~Nathaniel Hawthorne
