A Rabble of Butterflies

Down by the mailbox the other day I spied a yellow something fluttering around.

Fortunately I had my camera so I snapped some photos.

These are called "southern dogface" butterflies.

Sounds like fightin' words to me!

They were very pretty in the gravel.

A bunch of butterflies is called a rabble.

These were southern dogface rabble-rousers.


  1. I never knew that they were called a rabble. I can always count on you to teach me something new. xox... Great close ups of the butterflies.

  2. I learned a new word today "rabble." Great photos.

  3. I had some of those butterflies in my flower garden today. I didn't know their name and didn't know they were a rabble.

  4. I love these! I did not know that word for butterflies- a rabble.
    Whenever I see them congregating like this, I say they're mud puddlin'. Sometimes the rabble(s)(?) are made up of blue butterflies.

  5. "southern dogface rabble-rousers."

    ROFL...I love it. And that is a LOT of little yellow butterflies in one spot. Lucky you!
