Busy Butterfly

My Georgia Gardens are weed free (for the time being) and the house should be completely dust free by the time family arrives this afternoon! I have been moving like this BUSY BUTTERFLY, In the Garden...

  2. I love watching the butterflies. I've seen a few of these black swallowtails here, but otherwise we haven't had many butterflies this year. I'm hoping they are just late arrivals.

    A weed-free garden and a dust-free house?? I don't think I've ever been able to say that at the same time:)

  4. Tina, I just looked in the butterfly book and think this butterfly might be the Anise Swallowtail.

    I am sure that Randy will ID it for us as he is a great butterfly and bug ID'er...

  5. I tried to find the butterfly in the book you sent me and coul not find it. There are many swallowtails but not the anise in the book. Pretty anyway.

    Have a good visit with your vistors!

  8. Skeeter,
    Weed free, huh you mean the weeds are free? Doubt you got all of them, roots too?

    Palamedes Swallowtail, we are just out of their range. Once I saw 3 of them flying like puppets on a string over top of each other.

  11. Good evening everyone! I have run myself ragged today but it is a good ragged....

    I knew you would come through for me in the ID'ing Randy! Thanks and he was a really large butterfly and after seeing the size of the Anise, I knew it was not this guy....
