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.

  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.
