I’ve been fascinated by the Buttonbush with its round flowers that look like pin cushions. Happy with damp roots, there are a few growing along the boardwalk at the edge of the Magnolia Audubon Swamp within easy range but I’ve only produced ho-hum images.
Finally, I got a photo op with a Swallowtail Butterfly.
The butterfly edged his way slowly all around this flower, working his legs in between the flower pistils.
Upside down he gave a nice view of the underside of his wing.
