A beautiful but tattered and weary Tiger Swallowtail butterfly

A beautiful but tattered and weary Tiger Swallowtail butterfly
Today seemed to be my day for the tired and weary to come and see me. Ragged beauty... but STILL beautiful.

Two more photos in NOTES at Bottom Left.

Thankyou george !

The little Sunflowers are achingly bright in the sunlight ! Even without the sun they are bright !! They grow like weeds here.. all these are self sown. I lost so much last year to continued drought that these are always welcome !
