The Queen's Wreath is gorgeous right now, and the butterflies love it Butterflies cover the plants, the plants cover fences and anything else they touch. The butterflies below are in huge numbers. It's really amazing.
Every kind of butterfly loves them and I even caught a bee in this shot.
This little Gray Hairstreak butterfly (below) seems happy to share the blossoms with a bee. If you want to see more great shots of these, check out Photographer In Training's blog. She has several days of posts that are fantastic! She shot well over 1000 photos of the butterflies.
Here's a side shot of the piece:
