Butterfly bushes

There is a reason they call them ‘butterfly bushes.’ These two beauties visited early this morning. I could see them flitting around from the study window and I couldn’t resist. Both swallow tails of two different colors on the bush at the same time!

I like the soft edges in this one:

And this Raggedy Ann with torn wings showed up later in the day. Not as pretty a specimen as the one above, but I liked the sun filtering through her wings.

Comments:

So pretty! They must have been relaxing to watch. They are so graceful.

I love to have a butterfly bush in the garden - I am so envious of the photos you take.

Jessica and Joyce, Thank you! I was just wondering the other day why I hadn’t seen any butterflies yet and now they are everywhere I look!
