A new swallowtail came by today. It is different from the one I had a couple of weeks ago. That one had a chunk out of its wingtip. It was interesting to watch as it flitted from flower to flower. The sun was washing out some of the yellow in its wings but they are still beautiful.
Along with the swallowtail were a little flock of finches that stopped to eat at my feeder.
The bumble bee has been steadily working on the Cosmos flowers in my garden.
