Beautiful Butterflies

I have yet to see a Monarch butterfly this year so when I saw yellow flutters from a distance I grabbed the camera and ran.

I found three Eastern Tiger Swallowtails enjoying fuchsia blossoms, golden sunshine and the cool breeze rocking the branches of our butterfly bush.

The intense heat and humidity that scorched the garden and made it nearly unbearable to work outdoors turned to temperatures so cool that long pants and long sleeves were required. The extremes of Connecticut summer have given way to the most glorious of summer weather.
