Fun Friday: Can We Bee Friends?

Today’s “Fun Friday” post features an image I captured yesterday in our lake home (Lake of the Ozarks, MO) butterfly garden. As I entered the garden to water the plants, there were butterflies and pollinators everywhere! In today’s post, both a Painted Lady butterfly (not the most photogenic specimen, with it’s tattered wings) and a Honey Bee were busy jockeying for position to get some sweet nectar from one of our zinnia flowers:

I spent a little while photographing all the species of butterflies that were busy in the garden, and will be featuring some of them over the next few days.
