Too hot to walk

I walked about in my backyard.




Our clover lawn is home to many bugs.



The Eastern Tailed-blue butterflies



seem to enjoy all the flowers.








The bees love the lavender.








A Variegated Fritillary flew in.



First time I have ever seen one.








A caterpiller munching on a geramiun.

A Zebra Swallowtail having lunch in the butterfly weed.

It is too hot to walk.

I think I will stay home with my bugs.

it has been extremely hot here too.
unfortunately the weeds are loving it...but so are the tomatoes, cucs, melons, beans, etc...
your photos of your bugs are great.

Such amazing photos! I love the multi-hued butterflies in your garden who seem so willing to pose for you.
And Q ... you just dont know what hot is till you've suffered through an Indian summer ;)
Or should that read "a summer in India" ?
