Unseasonably Warm December Keeps The Butterflies Visiting!

Since the copper canyon daisies are still blooming, due to not having a hard freeze yet, I usually see a butterfly or two if I remember to go out when the sun is shining on the flowers. The falling leaves fool me into thinking there are lots of butterflies out in the yard, but here is proof that a butterfly or two is mixed in with the fluttering leaves! I haven’t identified this butterfly yet – I’ve never seen one like this in my yard.
