Our "Pet" Butterflies

I wanted to show you are "pet" butterflies that show up every morning and evening.

These are Yellow Swallow Tail butterflies that are the state insect of Georgia. We love watching them every morning and every evening. We have had as many as four on one of our lantanas! They just love lantana! It won't be long before the Monarchs will be coming through as they start their migration.

If you have a really sunny place to plant something, try planting lantana. The kiddos love watching all the different bees and butterflies that show up to feed on the lantana's necture. It's always facinating to see what creatures show up!
