Beautiful...I photoed one in my garden a couple days ago...unfortunately, I only had my trusty camera phone on my hip, so I didn't post the pic. But since that day, when I grab my other tools, the real camera comes along with me. You never know when you'll get such peaceful visitors.

I have a swallowtail fluttering about too.they seem to stay u in mimosia tree.I'm close to climbing the ladder to get my shot from rooftop.I've got pipevine cats eating& a fuzzy yellowish cat on milkweed.got tent cats in the bulberry& redwood trees.

I have that picture on desktop as background....and arranged my icons just for it.it's my favorite right now.When I have time I'll load more butterfly videos.

The Red Admirals hatched a couple of weeks ago here in Central Wisconsin and they were everywhere! I have never seen so many! Made me feel like a real gardener seeing them all over the flowers.
