    noticed a few butterflies on the Sarracenia today

    the first, i think, is a red-spotted purple, the 2nd is a red admiral.

    Hm. A little large for the sarra. I suggest you take a dipstick and push them inside the sarra's mouf.

    Very nice! I can't believe the second picture. It's fantastic!!!

    Just be careful they don't lay eggs on your plants. Caterpillars can be devastating...

    Red-spotted purple & Red admiral I believe. Beautiful butterflies. While we have those around, they don't usually get near the CPs. However the little Pearl crescents are drawn to the CPs and several get caught each year (sadly).

    I go a step further, although it's a very anthropocentric view, I don't like to see any beautiful or 'helpful' critters (aka: non-pests) get captured by my CPs. While I feed them yellow jackets, I periodically rescue butterflies. When Jim Scott fed that sphinx moth to his CPs a few weeks ago - - - - - let's just say, that was something I would probably not do....
