All summer long my garden gets visited by these beautiful Western Swallowtails.
They very much love the butterfly bushes I planted, but really go crazy over Peruvian lilies.
The swallowtails love basking in the hot afternoon sun and feed on the Alstroemeria’s nectar.
Once they land on the blossoms they sip and sip and sip.
They spread their wings, sip some more and then …
… they take a careful step with their long legs …
… and reach for the next flower near them.
Ahhhhhhh! Almost there! Just one more teensy step!
Is this the perfect nectar-filled flower?
“Let me check!”
The answer must be yes!
Are you ready to dive head first into your weekend?
