A Visitor Flutters By

Alighting with grace,

Sipping nectar here and there;

Butterfly delight!

Last week I noticed a lively activity among these clusters of light purple flowers.   There were butterfly couples constantly fluttering about and exploring among the fragrant lilac flowers and getting their fill of nectar. They’d go away and then come back again. I could see them every time I passed by.  I wondered….were they actual couples?

I didn’t have a chance to get photos of the beige-patterned butterfly visitors (whose markings reminded me somewhat of monarchs), but the swallowtails – like the one in these photos – were quite cooperative as models.
