Garden Guests: Question Mark Butterfly

The north side of our front yard is a certified  National Wildlife Federation Backyard Habitat.  Really!  We have a certificate!  It is so much fun to see all of the critters that stop by for a visit.  I'm beginning a new series of posts to show you our Garden Guests.

Question Mark Butterflies have vibrant orange wings on the inside, but look like leaves when their wings are folded.

  4. I found a butterfly the other day that looked like it had a cross on it when the wings were down. Nature can be so interesting!

  9. I really want to put a butterfly garden in. The west side of our house is covered with river rock. I Hope to get it done over the next few years.
