I thought all of the butterflies had left but found this one flying back and forth to pollinate the Zinnias today. it was a relief to have better weather for it to work in with sun shining instead of rain..The down side is that a hornet tried to harass me by landing on my camera near my fingers but amazingly there was a zinnia bud nearby and I brushed it off with the end of the bud...It gave me a combative look but then it decided to fly away:) Didn't get stung which I am thankful for!

Best View in Light-Box! Thank you!
