Snowberry Clearwing

On the way home today I stopped at the Nature Center.
I was hoping the wild Bee Balm would be in bloom.

Some that grows in full sun was in bloom.

It was covered in Snowberry Clearwings and Bumble Bees.

I know the swallowtail butterflies also like Bee Balm.

I have a small stand of Bee Balm in my backyard.
It is in bud.
I can hardly wait for mine to bloom.

Dear Wildlife Gardener,
I had a most delightful walk!
Seeing the Clearwings was a real treat. I hope they come to my backyard soon!
