My Mexican Sunflower bush is turning into a butterfly magnet. Every time I look out into the backyard there is a butterfly nectaring on its flowers. Monarchs, swallowtails, sulphurs, fritillaries….it’s fun to have an active yard! :)
These pictures were taken after a nice summer shower (yes! rain! we finally got some!) The butterfly must have been especially hungry after it rained almost all day. She spent at least half an hour nectaring.
