    Great photos. I’m seeing more butterflies here too but I haven’t managed to capture a photo.

      Glad you’re seeing more too Kris. The ones I’ve seen this year are especially skittish, especially the larger ones. I can’t seem to get close to them.

      Although I didn’t plant specifically for pollinators I’m so happy they’re finding my garden. Now I do keep them in mind when planting of course.

      This is 3rd year having a Zebra swallowtail stop by the garden. This year it passed through very quickly, but last year I was able to get better photos. Very beautiful creature.

      Yes. And it was serendipity to see it at all. It was only in the garden less than five minutes and I had just picked that time to step outside with the camera. A treat.
