This is a picture I took of these beauties last September. They spent the night ‘roosted’ in one of our elm trees. The tree literally looked at though it was blooming butterflies. We felt privileged to witness such a beautiful sight in our back yard.
I have been seeing some really large ones flitting around our yard again lately and am really hoping the whole bunch will grace us again this year with an over night visit. I know the ones I have been seeing aren’t hanging around because we have so many flowers to feed on. The drought has seen to that but at least the old trumpet vine is still doing an admirable job and has quiet a few blooms for these most welcome visitors.
I am always amazed at God’s creation and this event was truly awesome!
