As I sat down to write this post, words from an old James Taylor song popped into my mind –
Summer’s here, I’m for that
Got my rubber sandals, got my straw hat
Got my cold beer, I’m just glad that it’s here
Well, summer for me means that the butterflies are starting to show up.
The first two that fluttered by while I had my camera in hand were this lovely Gulf Fritillary…
…and this stunning Tiger Swallowtail.
I’m hoping many more beauties will show up in the weeks ahead.
