They really seem to like the zinnias too

that butterfly really is pretty. I've been chasing a large black and yellow one around my place for several days. I still haven't got a picture of him.

I'm 46 and I'm still chasing butterflies.... :)

The very first pictures I believe are zebra swallowtails, the anise is much darker like a black swallowtail and found west of the Rockies. The zebra swallowtail is found in the south. The second butterfly is the tiger swallowtail, the next is a monarch. Then another swallowtail, probably black swallowtail. Tonya your first one is a monarch and your second one is probably the Palamedes swallowtail..

Beautiful pictures!

This is what the chrysalis looks like:
