But I can't help myself. When there are 3 swallowtails and 2 buckeyes and a little checkerspot and a duskywing all nectaring on newly opened lantana, what am I to do? Take another pic of the birdbath?
I love this birdbath. I still need a hollow bamboo
pole to thread the hose through. Birds love it too.
Beside the birdbath is more echinacea.
The camera is still. The flowers and butterfly are moving in the wind.
It felt like Texas in May here today with all that wind.
I have another, longer video but it is poor quality. Just know that there were spicebush swallowtails and buckeyes and a checkerspot. The buckeyes flew away and the little checkerspot was all blurry.

You must look closely to see the duskywing upper center on yellow.
Oh, and I saw an American Painted Lady who flew
as soon as he saw the camera.
