Orange Sulfer Butterfly


This female Orange Sulfer butterfly spent quite a while feeding on this particular California Giant Zinnia today.



Photos make it much easier to see the proboscis inserted into the actual flowers in the center of the composite bloom.




Here is a quick video...I wish you could more easily see the vigor with which this butterfly was feeding!

I enjoy butterflies in the garden... floating flowers!
