My Vote? Monarch on Joe Pye

Monarch Butterfly photographed by Jeff Zablow at Raccoon Creek State Park. Jeff blogs about the art and science of butterflies at http://www.wingedbeauty.com

Tired of the USA election cycle, I prefer much to cast my vote for this All American pair. A male Monarch butterfly nectaring on Joe Pye flowers. An American butterfly on an American wildflower. Both valued in your meadows, fens and trails.

See? This has been a fine, relaxing change for me. For you?

  1. My Vote? Monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus) On Mexican Sunflower (Tithonia rotundifolia). T. rotundifolia, is a vigorous, warm-season annual that is easy to grow in any ornamental garden, ( as in my little butterfly garden)
    I love them because the flowers are attractive to a wide variety of bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds!
    This has been a fine, relaxing change for me as well.
    Thank you, Jeff.
