Pollinators

There have been some gorgeous butterflies in my yard this week. This one didn't let me get too close.
This guy seems to be clinging to this flower for dear life. This is a scarlet runner bean that I planted on a teepee. The flowers are pretty, but no beans have been produced yet, so maybe this will help. I also planted something called "Purple Hyacinth" bean, which has produced neither beans nor hyacinths.

Those are some really great pics! And lovely yard you got there. Do these critters visit all the time?

Thanks guys - I've seen lots of bees but no butterflies until this week. Hope they (and you) continue to visit.
