It’s Butterfly/Moth Photography Season!

Every year about this time the “weeds” in the pastures have amazing flowers that attract a wide variety of butterflies and moths. I set up my camera and tripod and then wait for them to flit by!

Good frontal view; see enlargement below.

Here’s a zoom in on the proboscis.

They love ironweed!
