Mint fresh Red Admiral today. I called this small butterfly, a Sleepy Orange. It was very pale, and a real runt. Seen while Jeanine Apgar was visiting my gardens. I believe the pictured skipper is an Ocola with worn markings. Cloudless chrysalis here plus at least 6 Monarch caterpillars, over a dozen Black Swallowtail caterpillars and a few American Lady caterpillars. Still a good number of flowers for nectar.
