Butterflies

Butterflies

We have this wonderful perennial plant in the weed patch – flower garden in front of our house. It grows all summer long with succulent-looking leaves, until early fall when it makes these beautiful violet flowers.

Over the years it has gotten quite large and I’ve known in the past that it generally attracts lots of honey bees.    This year I’ve found something quite different and extraordinarily beautiful – Butterflies.  In this particular sighting, we had about 7 or 8 of the colorful lepidopterans fluttering around and sucking nectar so intently that I was able to catch some pretty awesome shots of them, very close up, without disturbing their activity.  If anyone out there knows the name of this succulent flower – I’d be happy to learn something new.  Hope you enjoy our “Butterflies.”
