Swallowtails in Black and White
It took me several years to draw wildlife to the garden: birds, butterflies, and beneficial insects. Now we garden together–the wildlife and I. By midsummer, it’s difficult to snap photos of the flowers without “someone’s” tail sticking up out of the center. But I don’t mind. They have a job to do.
I have already seen swallowtails and a monarch which I don’t normally spot this early in the season. If the sun would cooperate, the blossoms will appear too. Can’t have a banquet without the food, can we?
