I lied...

Les has commented on my Spicebush Swallowtail shot below so its encouraged me to put out the other butterflies I managed to get shots of . All of these are from Michigan...

Northern Crescent Phyciodes selenis a tiny small copper sized butterfly.

Pipevine Swallowtail Battus philenor has less orange spots than Spicebush Swallowtail. You were right all along Les.

Like our Holly Blue, this is Spring Azure Celastrina ladon. Probably.

We have nothing like this. Silver spotted Skipper Epargyreus clarus, a very unusually shaped butterfly.

Like Dingy Skipper but this is a guess as there are a lot of similar species. Could be Horace's Duskywing Erynnis horatius or Wild Indigo Duskywing E. baptisiae ?
It would have been nice to find an easy one!
