Admittedly a skipper, but super cute on the dianthus. I’ve seen a few cabbage ones (the little white ones) and maybe maybe maybe a painted lady (maybe – or I might be misremembering) this year. But this is the first shot at one for 2022.
Lots of bees out today finally. Most seemed clustered in the catmint (ignoring the irises). My favorite shot of the day was this one. Such good detail frozen…down to the pollen on her eye.
