This spring was just a butterfly lovers paradise right in my own back yard. I'm not sure what these white flowered weeds are called, as I've not been successful identifying them with my field guides, but whatever they are, bugs love them. I could tell why, because I have an extra sensitive sense of smell and when the whole yard was full of them in bloom, the sweet smell was almost overwhelming! A perfume very similar to honeysuckle. They were a buzz with bees and all a flutter with at least five different varieties of butterflies, not to mention moths, ladybugs and a whole bunch of other bugs that I'm not qualified to name, ha ha! So needless to say I spent hours with my camera out there happily snapping away and this shot of the beautiful Painted Lady is one of the best of the season! That is really the hardest part of photography, deciding what to keep and what to delete. It's silly I know, but you get attached to your photos and breaking up really is hard to do!
