I continue to be amazed by all that NB has to offer! I just stopped by a LYS and was told that the majority of their yarns come from NB (we are in BC) and they were beautiful, natural yarns. REally hope that we can visit NB in the not too distant future. In the meantime, look forward to enjoying more pics. at your blogs Ann. A friend of mine (at EArth Friendly Gardening) also was amazed by your butterfly photos. Very impressive.

Is #1 a Garden Carpet Moth? I was checking images on Google and thought it looked like it.

I have found the folks at Bug Guide to be very helpful. I upload a photo and have an answer pretty quickly. Love the blog..Michelle

Don't the cabbage whites look fragile? But they must be pretty hardy from what I've seen of them. They just look so dainty and delicate

Cabbage white..thank you. I couldn't get close enough to photograph the ones I am seeing. But that's it...
