I finally captured a butterfly on a Butterfly Bush! We have a dozen Butterfly Bushes scattered through out our backyard and they do attract butterflies, but I never seem to have my camera when the butterflies are visiting. When I was watering yesterday, I noticed a few butterflies, dropped the hose and ran for my camera. Fortunately, this glutonous little Swallowtail was still drinking the nectar when I returned: Here is the butterfly from another angle: Is there a photo that you long to capture, but still alludes you?
