Painted Ladies Love Fest

The Painted Ladies showed up yesterday and have stopped to feast on the blooming Rabbit Bush in my garden. The winds are quite high and they cling to the flowers and close up their wings....which creates quite a show.... It looks as though they are being coy with their colours!

The Yellow Jackets and Bees are always chasing them away and trying to hog all the nectar and pollen....

I sat here on the bench with my camera for about an hour....
