Milkweed nectar must be delicious!
Bees and some butterflies can't resist common milkweed (Asclepias syriacus), and my camera couldn't resist taking photos of the bee on this plant.
Largest square: closeup of viceroy, a butterfly that looks a lot like a monarch. It's here you so you can see what this butterfly looks like since - as you can see in the next photo (moving clockwise) - the viceroy didn't want to stop to have its portrait taken. In the next four squares, a bee is fascinated by the fading blossoms on common milkweed.
