Pearl Crescents Courting

“Hi there big little boy!”

Romance is in the air and on the Shasta Daisies, as the Pearl Cresent Butterflies have been courting with standoffs and flurries of fluttery foolery in the flowers. I assume the smaller butterflies are the males.

“This is my good side.”

“Well? Are you just going to stand there and gawk at me?”

Lady Cresent in waiting.

She didn’t have to wait long.

The male paused to savor the view of Lady Crescent’s beautiful butterfly behind.

An advance.

Fluttery butterfly foolery in the flower.

I found these two had snuck off into the weeds to do the butterfly bad thing.

This is what they call the “Butterly Position”.
