Differential Strömgren uvby photometric observations from the Four College Automated Photoelectric Telescope are used to examine the possible variability of the spectrophotometric standards θ Vir and 109 Vir. No evidence is found for variability within a season of observation. Small year to year differences are most likely due to unaccounted for extinction changes.
Key words: stars: individual: θ Vir / stars: individual: 109 Vir / stars: variables: other
