Started drifting south central time 6pm through 7pm. About 10 per minute.
It seemed a cluster of butterflies were making a circle through the trees and over the roof of my house: what I saw may have been the same ones over and over. I observed this for several nights: they were making rest stops in the very tall oak and maple trees by my home. Always seemed at dusk, and I could not get photographs through my living room window, which is on a second story so it is quite high up, and close to the elevation they were circling. The appearance was that in a given minute, it seemed there were 5 or 10 floating by my window.
I finally got a picture a few days later Monday 9/21 at 6:26pm (Central) - see attached. The color was more saturated orange than this photo shows.
