One of the many things I've learned while taking macro photos in Michele and John's garden is that I don't know much about insect and plant names. One site I've found helpful for butterfly identification is the Butterflies and Moths of North America site. I like that the site has a map search option that lists species found in a given county. However, it's sometimes hard to get a positive identification because of the limited number of photos. I just got info from one of the site administrators on how to submit photos. I plan to submit some photos like the one of this Skipper (of some type) below that was tasting the sedum blossoms. There is another shot of the Skipper here.
