K2 is very patient with the camera and she waited a while for these butterflies to settle so she could snap the pics.
This is a Great Spangled Frittilary on one of our naturalized echinaceas. Pretty.
This looks like a dark version of a tiger swallowtail knee deep in one of our hosta flowers. I rescued a few of these hostas from a property where they were being mowed down and over the years they have multiplied. And multiplied. The flower stalks are about three feet high and the butterflies, hummingbirds and bees cannot get enough of them. The nectar must be really terrific.
