Nectaring after the rain

front meadow planting
An exceptionally rainy spell (three+ days) finally broke, with bright sunshine late this afternoon.

Tiger swallowtail and bumblebee (notice how battered the flowers are!)
The swallowtail just kept working the flowers!
A tiger swallowtail was taking advantage of the dry weather to get some serious nectaring done. This individual spent almost 15 minutes working on a flower spike of this Liatris, supported from flopping by a green plant stake.

I enjoy hearing from fellow nature lovers and gardeners. Let me know your thoughts.
