My, How the Butter Flies When You're Having Fun!

The butterflies seem pretty happy these days. I think it probably has something to do with the fact that they have a huge smorgasborg of nectar to eat. These two lovely specimens Calliandra and Stachytarpheta, aka Powder Puff and Snakeweed, are finally getting enough sun to produce nectar. For the first time in the year and a half since I've been here I saw a couple of cute julias (battas julia) sipping nectar from them. I tried to get a photo but those butterflies are rather flighty.

Oh wait! Here they are!
