Butterfly and Bumblebees

Black Swallowtail

I enjoy watching the bumblebees and butterflies visit the purple Salvia’s in my backyard. Although I have other flowers, the Salvias are clearly a hit. Yesterday I spent some time trying to photograph as the clouds rolled in but before the rains came. It made for better lighting for pictures.

After taking closeup photographs like these, I enjoy seeing details that I can’t see with my naked eyes. You can see the proboscis probing into the flower.

The bumblebees are always very busy with these flowers. I’m glad the Salvias are in constant bloom.

I love the wing movement in this picture while the bee is still.
