Monarch on butterfly weed

The butterfly weed (milkweed family) was living up to its name today, and I caught a picture of a monarch and a pearl crescent butterfly on it.  I think it has had more blooms on the places I cut for a bouquet a month or so ago.

This has been a great year for this native perennial.


  1. I've shot some butterfly shots this week too. I'm looking for a source of milkweed. I read where butterflies love milkweed.

  2. You and Rick catch some great butterfly shots. I declare I cannot get them to pose long enough for me. LOL
    There is something about the butterfly's beauty and erratic flight that always makes me smile. Good ones.
