Nature study in wild flowers

In Deerfield Park, just west of Mt. Pleasant, There is a field of beautiful, colorful wildflowers. I spent time stalking bees and other bugs today.

These butterflies were skittish and playful. They played hard to get for a long while.

Eventually I caught this one, whose wings were tinged pink and looked jeweled.

I don't know what this is. It flew like a moth but jumped off its landing spot like a grasshopper.

Is this a moth? No clue, but there were tons of them.
