Walking around my yard this morning doing my daily round, I spotted this cute little Pearl Crescent (Silvery Checkerspot?) butterfly. (If this is an incorrect identification of this butterfly, please let me know in the comments.) After putting in quite an effort to make my yard butterfly friendly, it's very gratifying to walk around and see them everywhere.
After further research, I've determined that this is almost definitely a Silvery Checkerspot butterfly. - 9/17/09
