Attracting Bees and Butterflies

Do-Something-Everyday, August 1, 2016

The coneflower plants on my front yard attract all types of insects, the best of which are the butterflies. Yesterday, this big Spicebush Swallowtail came to visit and stayed long enough for me take multiple photos from various angles, close-up using my smartphone. Take a look:

  1. Beautiful photos, don't know how you get the butterfly to sit still!

  2. Thank you! These butterflies love coneflowers. So maybe that's why they stayed long enough.

  3. Oh wow! What gorgeous shots of the butterfly and flowers. It's such a beautiful butterfly.

  4. Butterflies love echinacea!
