I’m joining Cathy at Words and Herbs for her third annual Week of Flowers. She writes:
“Please join me in making December a bit brighter. From Wednesday, November 30th through Tuesday, December 6th, create a post. It can be one photo, or more if you like. You can post just one day or all seven. But do leave a link in the comments so that we can all see what you have found to share!”
Open to all… Let’s brighten up the blogosphere!
This is magnificent, Eliza!
Thank you, Anne. Our largest butterfly!
Thank you, Cindy!
Thank you, Val! x
Naturally the flower is lovely, but the Swallowtail is even better! I chased a couple of elusive visitors this summer, but they never settle for long enough. Great shot Eliza!
Thank you, Cathy. I was lucky this one was so hungry!
Lovely flowers, but completely over-shadowed by the butterfly. Fantastic photography as usual.
Reblogged this on Anita Dawes and Jaye Marie.
Thank you, Hien!
Well, that certainly brightened up my gray, gloomy, rainy morning!
Glad to know that, Judy! 🌞
Two beauties. The delicate stripes on the calibrachoa and the stripes and dots on the ‘Tiger’…amazing what grows on our 🌎
Thank you, Alice. Glad you caught that. 😉
In this case, these beautiful flowers are the perfect backdrop for the magnificent butterfly (steals the show, I must add).
It was a great catch to get the two together. That one lingered a while, enjoying its meal. Thanks, Dale!
That’s for sure! So lucky you were for that!
Makes me think of a greeting card (in the nicest possible way). 🙂
Thank you, Vicki. Definitely bright and cheerful!
I do love a swallowtail of any sort, but rarely see the yellow ones. Lucky you!
Thanks, Linda. It is our most common swallowtail, we get black ones, too.
Thank you, Sherry!
Thank you, Susan!
Oh so cheerful to see this summery scene, Eliza. There’s nothing like a swallowtail and pink flowers to brighten up this rainy day. Thanks so much.
Thank you, Jet. Glad to add a glimmer of light to your day!
Another beauty 😊
Thank you, Belinda!
Such a pretty flower and a beautiful butterfly.
Thank you, Rosie. 🙂
Simply beautiful Eliza – both bloom and butterfly which isn’t one I’d come across in my garden. Does the calibrachoa attract other pollinators?
Thank you, Anna. Yes, all types of bees, skippers, and hummingbirds are frequent visitors.
A butterfly is always a great addition to a floral pic 😉
Agreed 🙂 Thanks, Kris!
A gorgeous butterfly and pretty flowers – double joy 😍
Thank you, Cathy!
Very pretty with a bonus butterfly! Sweet!!
Thank you, Donna. Definitely an added visual treat. 🙂
How beautiful, both flower and butterfly
Thank you, Karina. 🙂
Pretty flowers and a butterfly as a bonus. Gotta love it. 😊
Thanks, Pepper! 🙂
Beautiful photo, Eliza. This lifts my spirits for today ~ such elegance along with beauty… for you and the butterfly 🙂
Thank you! It is always lovely when a butterfly comes to visit. 🙂
Now that is such a pleasing combination!
🙂 Thanks, Laurie!
I am enjoying your lovely flower pics and the butterfly seems to be really enjoying the nectar!
Yes, it definitely lingered for a while. Thank you, Carol!
Beautiful photos 🙂
Best combination…flower and pollinator. Lovely to see, Eliza!
Thank you, Steve!
The swallowtail’s a fine addition.
Thank you, Steve!
Very pretty combination!
Thank you, Barbara!
