I saw three different types of butterflies this weekend in the woods, so I decided to paint them. If you're a butterfly expert and I identified them incorrectly, let me know!
From the top:
1. Orange Tip (Anthocharis cardamines)
2. Tiger Swallowtail (Papilio glaucus)
3. Question Mark Butterfly* ( Polygonia interrogationis)
*This one has a white question marked shaped marking on it's outer wings. When the wings are shut, they look like greyish-brown tree bark. It's a fun, startling burst of orange when it opens up its wings and flies.
