CFFC – Pink & Magenta (and fluttering flowers too)

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week continues the flower theme with the colors pink and magenta. As I looked back to last summers flower photos, it seems that pink ¬†attraced a great deal of interest from butterflies and bees. So, a bonus comes with my entry this week.

The Butterfly Flower

Five butterflies in one click of the camera. With the milkweed gone to seed and hosting caterpillars, the local Joe-Pye Weed as taken its place as the dominate provider of super food to several butterfly species. These plants are part of the tall grass prairie plants in Ohio’s prairie islands.

Thanks for looking in and enjoying another Floral Friday with Butterflies and Wildflowers.

Joe-Pye Weed replaces the milkweed flower as butterfly super food.
