Well I guess they don't call this a BUTTERFLY bush for nothing!!! lol thumbup
But who is this butterfly - I've not seen one like this around here before - I have lots of swallowtails and monarchs, but this one is different.

Here are 2 pictures of the same pose, but on different flowers -
it was the best I could do when it was about 5 feet above me!

Wow what a beauty. Tried to use that picture for my desktop but it was not quite as nice as yours was.
