Nice shot,

I noticed she is standing on a plant (bush) that here in Europe we call it the butterfly tree, it does attract a lot of butterfly's, it know it with flowers in two colours, white and purple, so if you all want butterfly's in your garden just get one (or more) of those...cientific name...buddleja or buddleia

Very nice captures, Don. Looks like a swallowtail, but I am no expert on butterflies. Is it time for the annual migration of Monarchs. The hummers will be heading south also.

Hey Jerry, long time no see. Thanks for the comments. I'm not sure when the hummers will leave. It's been really hot here for this time of the year and I don't know if that will make a difference or not.
