    I hiked at the Sibley Volcanic Regional Preserve (Oakland, CA) this morning. Wild teasels are in bloom- and they are butterfly, bee, and moth magnets!

    I think that's a Western white Tiger -- more rare than the regular Tiger, which is rare enough!

    Good stuff!

    Butterflies never seem to hold/pose for me.

    Nice. I like flutterbys. We have a Meadow Argus almost exactly like your Common Buckeye.
