Default Backyard Bonanza

It was a bright and sunny day. I had not expected to see this many variety in my backyard today. See for yourself:

More common, the plain tiger:




Moderately common, the lemon pansy:


Quite common, the common emigrant:


Less common, the blue pansy: Despite a long wait, I could not get it with its wings spread wide.


Much less common, I was taken by surprise at the brilliant hues in a certain angle: The great eggfly:
