fence hopping: preparing to hibernate

fence hopping again.  i remembered to wear shoes and long pants this time.  probably though i should stick to jeans.  anyone know how to get grass stains out of pink pants?

i was pretty excited to find this patch of fritillaries. there must have been six or eight of them.  i was curious about them being out this late in the season, so i finally looked up the overwintering of butterflies.  a few migrate (monarch's and buckeyes) and some even overwinter as adults.  most, however, hibernate in the caterpillar stage in leaf litter.  interesting.  sweet dreams little ones . . . :)
