This last Butterfly looks like a Hackberry Emperor, but I’m just looking this up in the Minnesota identifier. Should a reader know this is an Hackberry Emperor, please let me know?

It’s a bonus when the butterflies are around the gardens. The Monarchs are super skittish and quickly move away.

The Swallowtail Butterfly was more focused on the flowers. Almost completely oblivious to my jaw hanging open as I took photos.

Butterfly offerings from brightest colored flowers is taking me to now, a moment to be there in the sun together.

    What a beautiful assortment. It’s always exciting here when we see a Swallowtail–it doesn’t happen very often, but it’s quite a treat!
