butterflies pirouette

butterflies pirouette
on the pink lips of milkweed
half closed, half open 

Early June, time for Red Milkweed, Queen Anne's Lace and Bird's-foot Trefoil to take their turn blooming. This butterfly looks like it had a close encounter with a hungry bird.

Butterflies, large and small, singly and in groups, flock to the deep pink pom poms of Red Milkweed. 

Honey bees delve into the golden coins of Bird's-foot trefoil.

And wasps explore the white doilies of Queen Anne's Lace.
