Vernonia and Tiger Swallowtail

I haven't seen too many butterflies yet this summer, aside from skippers and cabbage whites. 

Happily, we saw a newly emerged Monarch nectaring on a Cosmos in a pocket planting nearby yesterday.

This evening, there were two Tiger Swallowtails visiting the Vernonia looking robust, to the left of the Ozark witch hazel.

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