Busy Butterfly

Postby B_BQ » Jul 17, 2012 9:37 am

It's already close to 90 degrees on our patio this morning and I was going out to get some water on the annuals. This little fella was so busy on the Verbena, flitting from blossom to blossom, seemingly never still, that I wondered if I could even get a quick snapshot.

oooh nice Brenda!
Giant Swallowtail is one of my favourite butterflies! They really make a show when they drop by for a visit!

Very pretty verbena.
