Viceroy/Sunday Best

Yum, sugar water!

Two wasps and one viceroy appear to think they are hummingbirds!

Awesome shot! Love the bee in mid air there.

A very colorful photograph and full of wonder and delight!

Kathy said...

Very colorful. I think we here in Texas would call those yellowjackets. Our wasps are either red or black - and both are deadly. I carry an Epipen but have never had occasion to use it in over 40 years! You might say I'm VERY careful, because we have lots of stinging insects here!

Looks like my feeders most of the time. Everybody gets some but the hummingbirds.

Ours has lots of honeybees, but that's okay. I like seeing the bees. Beautiful butterfly!

Jeanne said...

This is a really neat device to lure and photograph butterflies! Great shot, and you even got a wasp!

My humming bird feeder has been taken down due to some back yard construction, but that didn't stop the H B to come looking for his breakfast this morning. It buzzed right by my ear.... I had no idea HBs are so LOUD!!!
