I was so surprised to see these gorgeous Black Swallowtails on my Butterfly Bush!
Please excuse the fact that it has not been pruned or dead headed all summer,
I have not been able to do it.
During a "normal" summer, I deadhead all of the spent blooms and the bush looks gorgeous.
It would have a lot more blooms on it had I been able to keep up with it.
Still the butterflies don't mind and I found these two were having a blast,
fluttering from one bloom to the next!
My dill did not do well this year,
so I did not get the abundant number of caterpillars I usually do.
- just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly -
