Butterfly Visiting our Lantana

The Lantana plants in our back yard are really beginning to look nice this summer, and there’s more to come. Not only do I like their colorful flowers, but so do migrating Butterflies passing through SW Virginia at this time of year. I was headed to the mailbox to retrieve the daily batch of unsolicited political letters from candidates we don’t support, assorted advertisements, bills and other junk, when I saw this lone Butterfly feasting on our flowers. I went back inside the house, grabbed my camera with telephoto lens, and captured some nice images which you see here. Like I always say, photos are waiting for you, if you’ll just look.
