The American Lady butterfly

September 25, 2017

 

An American Lady butterfly Vanessa virginiensis spent a lot of time on the patio visiting flowers for nectar.

 

 

I haven't seen it on cosmos blossoms before, but today it enjoyed blossoms on a new snowpuff cosmos plant which reseeded itself a few weeks ago (image above).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The butterfly spent a long time on this flower head on one of the butterfly bushes Buddleia davidii

growing in large pots.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Before it flew away, the butterfly spent some time sunning itself on a passionflower leaf.
