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.
Welcome back!

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.

Wonderful, Jeff. Suddenly in our neighborhood, there is a small invasion of Red Admiral butterflies. One landed on my shirt! Boy, was I surprised!

Good to see you back Jeff, Work does have a way of cutting into fun/creative time. Glad you had time to watch nature in action again. Colorful Peach and tack sharp details on the butterfly.
