Butterflies at Breakneck Hill Conservation Land

The sun came out right around lunchtime, so I took a quick hike over at Breakneck Hill and saw lots of nice butterflies.

Black Swallowtail (male)

Great Spangled Fritillary

These are the ones that I was able to photograph!  There were several Black Swallowtails flitting about and more than 12 Common Wood Nymphs that never wanted to land, but flew among the grasses and along the trail's edge.  I love butterfly season!  It's so fun to see what's flying about!
