Zebra Swallowtail Butterfly On Butterfly Weed
Photograph - Photography
On our travels down old dusty county roads today we saw more butterfly weed, Asclepias tuberosa, in bloom than I'd seen in a long time. And it was great to see this Zebra Swallowtail Butterfly, Eurytides marcellus, battling against a good breeze, to get to these bright orange flowers for a sip of nectar. Nearby were some of it's host plants, the slim leaf pawpaw, Asimina longifolia or A. angustifolia.
