We do not seem to have the blue dragonflies like they do in Texas, but we have abundant amounts of black and brown dragonflies here in Arkansas

This is a Branded Skipper Butterfly, taken from a front view and an overhead view. These are small, about 1/2″ long, but they can grow up to 2 1/4″ long.

This is the small brown Gary Jue butterfly.  He has one of the biggest eyes I have seen.

This white moth resting on a leaf is about 1/2″ across, he is the Forage Looper Moth.  I did not think he was alive, he had been in one spot for hours, but one light touch from my finger and he flew to another leaf.
