I saw this butterfly on the Lavendar Hyssop in my new (small) butterfly garden today. I first spotted it from the back window and at one point wondered if it was a drunken goldfinch with all that frantic flapping in the breeze! I was so excited that my camera was able to catch good images. This morning the garden also had a catepillar I have to id but didn't get a photo of. Monarch's I think. I can't wait to see what else it attracts!
