Painted Lady Butterfly at Avalon

Tuesday, September 3, 2019,

This was very good summer for butterflies. I seemed to see them in almost every park I visited. Avalon Park and Preserve in Stony Brook was absolutely alive with all sorts of these lovely critters. Here are a pair of photos of a Painted Lady Butterfly that I took there. Monarchs may get all the press but I think these beauties are just as wonderful as any Monarch. JK
