Two Natives

Eastern Tiger Swallowtail on Buttonbush, Brooklyn Botanic

in one place. Brooklyn Botanic that is. A female Eastern Tiger Swallowtail (Papilio glaucus) was just one of the many pollinators digging the Buttonbush (Cephalanthus occidentalis) flowers late this afternoon at Brooklyn Botanic. This native plant was also covered in bees. I took a quick stroll through the garden on my way home from work earlier and as usual, was not disappointed.
