A Yellow Swallowtail was diligently working a purple flower head.
I’m surprised at how few butterflies I’ve seen in my travels this spring.
This one was taking full advantage of all sides of these blooms.

Here’s hoping for more butterflies for you, Ellen. I am starting to see more and more of them.
Great that you are seeing more, Mike. It is hard to know what might be a natural cycle vs the effects of man’s choices.
Wow and WOW 🤩❤️😍
