A Morning Drink

An eastern tailed-blue, Cupido comyntas, drinks nectar from the flowers of Canada goldenrod.


We have had a long stretch of hot, dry weather and the butterflies are not present in the high numbers that they usually have this time of year.  Still, some are around.

    This has been a summer devoid of butterflies here in Dubuque.

    Butterfly numbers have been down here in the UK too, but in the last month they seem to be bouncing back because we’ve had 3 months of proper sunny summer weather. I hope it’s enough to restore them.
