Sweet Treat for Pollinators

It was a busy day at the hummingbird feeder, but not for the hummers. A Monarch Butterfly had been visiting for a few days and I finally got a photo.

Bees are also interested in getting the sugar water. Every time they got close to the butterfly, it flapped its wings to shoo them away. The hummingbirds are currently feeding from autumn blooms.

    I knew that bees and ants would come for the sugar water, but I didn’t realize that butterflies would, too. Makes sense.

    Guess we aren’t the only ones who enjoy a little sugar.😍
