Small Orangish Butterflies

    Last evening as we were celebrating a rare sunny sky by taking a walk, I noticed a preponderance of small orange butterflies on the many wildflowers that lined the edge of the road.  They seemed to be everywhere.
    I know that one of the survival strategies species sometime use is to have all of the members develop at the same time, thus flooding the environment so that they all can’t possibly be eaten because there is just too many of them.  I don’t know that that was the reason so many of these butterflies were present, but there were sure a multitude of them.  Maybe they were all gathering to party before mating.
    Whatever the reason, they did add an interesting visual note to our walk.
