Today’s post features some of the many (and I mean many!) Spicebush Swallowtail butterflies that visited our Lake of the Ozarks (Missouri) butterfly garden this summer. Hardly a day went by without seeing at least 2-3 of these beautiful butterflies:
They were frequent visitors to the zinnias and the “Blushing Suzy” flowering vines. Nectar was the name of the game!!!
Coming up … a few more species of butterflies that visited us!
