A Walk On The Wild Side

 My wildflower garden is really pretty right now.
There are so many different colors, it is filled with a lot of Cosmos and Zinnia.
The Skipper Butterflies and Bees are all over the flowers.

In these pictures you can easily see that the Skipper Butterflies have 4 wings.

The Bees prefer the Cosmos

Soon to be a Sunflower.

It's all beautiful! I didn't know some butterflies had 4 wings, and it seems your bee is black and white instead of black and yellow. I picked up a stick once and it moved cuz it was a praying mantis! Linda in Kansas

Debbie, your flowers are all looking beautiful.
I would like to try the Cosmos next year, our zinnias are still doing great.
The insects are happy in your garden. Beautiful photos! Take care, have a wonderful day!

So gorgeous for sure, I love when the bees are hanging upside down on them! We had a praying Manthis on our door the other day, the cats alerted us that it was there. LOL.
