After waiting in vain with my camera for butterflies to pass through my neighborhood a few weeks ago, I went to a very large local nursery that features hundreds of thousands of plants. (It sounds as if I spend way too much time chasing butterflies……) Even there, I didn’t see many butterflies, so I focused on bees, which were loaded down with bright orange pollen. For more of my bee and butterfly photos, scroll down to the next post or use my search box for other posts. Click on the photos for a better view. If you’ve visited my blog before, you know I’m big on pushing the protection of pollinators. Here are two informative sites: Monarch Watch and The Pollination Partnership.
