When I seen all the activity going on on a thistle flower, well I had to get the action with my camera! Thistle is a great attraction to all sorts of nectar eating bugs, butterflies are no different!
Some of these photographs are very busy, it was a active place!
This species of butterfly is the Western Sulphur Butterfly. Several butterflies are in this post at different stages of activity of living.
Along with bumble bees and some skipper butterflies.
The Western Sulphur Butterfly is quite common in our area of Central Oregon
