Thanks, all. They and the Gulf Fritillarys, and the Blue Skippers, Sulphurs, oh yeah and the Swallowtails have been a joyous event. This year because of all the rain, butterfly attractors have grown far beyond what they were last year, thus the overabundance. Two other nearby bushes attract tons of bees, which surprisingly leave me alone when I'm out shooting. So far this year, we've exceeded our annual rainfall totals and still have 3 1/2 months to go.
