Bee Balm Visitors
I've planted Monarda in my garden and had no takers, but at a local park, it was swarming with bees and butterflies, and a handful of hummingbird moths. This Snowberry Clearwing kept me busy, following it from plant to plant. I debated whether to post it, or a swallowtail species that's new to me as my main blip. I thought it was a Black Swallowtail, but in certain lighting the iridescent blue glowed. I don't recall seeing a Pipevine Swallowtail before, but that's what I came up with in my butterfly ID book. I included it as an extra, so if you have a chance to check it out, please let me know if I got that wrong.
