Butterflies and Bees

This fall has seen an abundance of butterflies and bees in the yard.  This was the first year I had Gregg's Mistflower blooming and the monarch butterflies seemed to set up camp there.  They also fancied the Mexican Bush Sage, as did the bees. I had many different colors of butterflies from yellow, orange, black, white and grey, but these are only ones that would pose for me.


  1. Oh, those are beautiful photos, Rebecca. The macros of the bees are incredible! I miss the bees and butterflies here, so thanks for sharing photos of your visitors.

    1. Thanks, Beth! They are winding down in my area. I can't wait to see how many I get next year.


I would love for you to leave me a comment...Rebecca
