A Hackberry Emperor Butterfly enjoys the fallen peaches from our tree in the backyard - The Bunny Rabbits start to eat the peaches and then the butterflies come in and drink the nectar - Nature is amazing to watch!

I see why its name includes Emperor, Jeff. What a regal little butterfly --- its patterns and colors are really lovely.The colors throughout this capture are a feast for the eyes.

I wonder if the butterflies can still fly after drinking all that nectar. If it's anything like the bees that used to eat our plums, they were in quite a drunken state and couldn't fly. A beautiful capture here Jeff.
