The American Lady butterfly

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.
