This first video features a Dogface Sulphur and then a Pipevine Swallowtail butterfly.
If you wonder what I'm saying, I was complaining about the butterflies running off when I approach with a camera. "Here she comes! they seem to say .... and they hide."
This vid is a Giant Swallowtail nectaring on Madagascar periwinkle.
They nectar on Tithonia, Lantana and Periwinkles with enthusiasm.
Periwinkles are setting abundant seeds.
Palest pink periwinkles are my favorite, here with a sprig of
Duranta hanging over.
Buffy, blending in.
Flowers and text are from the garden of Nell Jean blogged on Dotty Plants Journal in hot, humid Southwest Georgia.
