From a distance it looked like there were pieces of paper caught in the flowers but it was the weight of the butterflies that made the stems bend. A beautiful sight.
Oh look a butterfly. They are fun to watch in the garden.
The butterfly is a little beat up but posed for me. I have not seen many of them this year.
I am not sure what the creature was doing in the grass but decided to photograph it instead of asking questions. I grow flowers that attract the monarch butterfly but they rarely let me photograph them and I did not see very many this year.
