Those are beautiful.
Is that one of the new sunrise or sunset Echinacea in the first picture?

Those are beautiful photographs, and it is very commendable that you raised those butterflies. You must have a good camera and know how to use it.

Sorry I don't remember the name of the flower but I did buy it new this summer, I bet it is what you think it was though.
Thank you for all the nice comments. I have done alot of research on raising butterflies and come to the conclusion that they are better off if I collect them and raise them in jars, there are so many parasites that can attack the catepillars. In fact out of the 12 that evolved into beautiful butterflies, I also had 12 die because of parasite inside them. I did not find them in time in the wild.
Konrad, I love your butterfly shots, please share more.
