Butterfly on Mimosa Tree

Butterflies do not know that Mimosa Trees are invasive and this Swallowtail happily partook of the pink fluffballs these trees are known for.

The flowers have a sweet smell that can be overpowering but this late afternoon a breeze was blowing it away from me.

The butterfly bounced along at the top of the tree then disappeared into another flower grouping in the shade.

  1. I have one in my garden and I love it. Over here in Northern Europe they are not invasive and they don’t grow fast. But our climate is totally different from yours ofcourse.
