Butterflies in the Yard

I've been on vacation this week. We haven't gone anywhere, but just taken time to do things around the house and farm this week. I was out watering one morning and noticed this butterfly flittering about the flowers. I snapped a few pics with my ipod, then it struck me - go get your good camera. So I did! I had the time and this photogenic butterfly entertained me for a while.
 I didn't start many seeds in my greenhouse this year, but zinnias were among the ones I planted. I know from past experience, the butterflies like zinnias and I like butterflies. I planted the zinnias around the gazebo and front steps where I would be able to see and photograph them.

 All of a sudden, two butterflies came into view!
