I hope you can increase the size or get a closer look. This butterfly is the exact same color as the flower!

beautiful! Have you noticed, as we have, that this year the butterflies are both bigger and more numerous than in past years? There were some around our bottle brush tree the other night that I thought were hummingbirds at first.

Speaking of Hummers, I saw one last week after dark, sipping from my moonflowers that I grow along the fence line. Couldn't get a decent pic, darn it, but it was fun to see!

they've been all over my newly planted crepe myrtle in front of my office window for a few days. I need to get the feeder up.

Yep, feeding time. Those busy little guys will have a long way to fly soon.

The bug above is an Agraulis vanillae. Louisiana used to put out a free book on the hummingbirds that are in and pass through Louisiana. Nice book with good photos if you can find a copy somewhere.
