There are more advantages to keeping the deer out of my yard than just having flowers bloom. This year I have been fortunate enough to see regular appearances of swallowtail butterflies and hummingbirds. I am not quick enough with the camera to catch a picture of the hummingbirds, but the butterflies are much more tolerant of my prowling. Here is one enjoying the six foot tall Joe Pye Weed.
