Butterfly bushes attract butterflies like no one’s business!
Here are some photos of butterflies in my garden beds. They are swarming around my Butterfly bush right now because it is full bloom.
Spicebush Swallowtail Papillo troilus feeding on some nectar. He seems to be enjoying himself!
Two for the price of one!
A gorgeous butterfly enjoying the nectar on a zinnia in my test garden.
Great shot of two of the same buckeye butterfly. My bush had at least 50 of these the day I took this!
Yellow swallowtail butterfly. I had the hardest time getting him to stay put. He is extra hungry and keeps flitting from one bloom to another.
This one was huge – a Dark Morph Tiger Swallowtail! Love the color on his bottom.
