Butterflies-small and large

Friends, the top image is a pearl crescent butterfly with a wing span of 1.25 inches, very small but the orange dot on the end of the club-shaped antennae is the defining mark.  The bottom image is a swallowtail that is much larger as seen on a blue flag iris, all of them wild, wild, wild.  til Tomorrow MJ
