[This butterfly is a Silver-spotted Skipper. Skippers have some characteristics of both butterflies and moths.  They tend to have large, rather stocky heads, thick-oriented bodies, and relatively short wings, spanning up to 2 inches.  The antenna are set far apart on the head and end in a curved hook.  Adults love to sip nectar (as this one can be seen doing with its long proboscis.]

[This butterfly is a Red-spotted Purple.  The mature caterpillar of this butterfly resembles a bird dropping; it is cream-colored with dark mottling and a saddlelike patch on the back.  It’s a very defensive and effective way of avoiding predators; look like a pile of crap and your enemies will not even notice you!  Tomorrow morning, I don’t think I’ll comb my hair!  😉 ]

[This butterfly is a Red Admiral.  It is using its proboscis to suck nourishing nectar from the pink Cone Flower.  Butterflies can only suck up fluids. They do have salivary glands. They don’t have saliva tubes in the proboscis but they can eject a drop of saliva to help dissolve more solid food.]
