My butterfly garden is swarming with American painted ladies. Yesterday I had about 15-20 of them in my small garden. (Click on the picture above to enlarge it.) I must be easily amused and fascinated because it amazes me how the coloring can be so different on their wings. The wings seem so thin, yet the color is so different on the underside compared to the top. A volunteer sunflower in the back yard near the bird feeder.
'PinotGirgio' hibiscus, I love the pink blush around the white petals. This grasshopper was hiding out in the moonflower.
