I posted all the species I saw today but here are a couple pics of the Pipevine Swallowtail and one of the Sulphurs. Does anyone know what kind of bug the one pic is? The antenna were cool - orange tips like the pattern on the back.

Great pictures, Mary!
I don't know what kind of bug that is, but it reminds of a beautiful rainbow beetle that showed up on my front porch one day a few years ago -

The orange things on the antennae look similar, so I imagine yours is some type of scarab/dung beetle. I'll try to find out what it is tomorrow - gotta go to bed. :0

Cool Beetles! I think it's some kind of carrion beetle. Here's what comes up on Google imagages. There's one that looks similar close to the bottom of the page.
