Monarch Butterfly & Buddleia Bush

Buddleia is also known as butterfly bush for the way they attract dozens of these delicate creatures to come sip their nectar. Mine are still in bloom and still attracting butterflies, but the monarchs are no longer stopping by. I suspect they are on their way to Mexico by now to spend the winter.
But here is one that I saw several weeks ago. I thought that the orange of the butterfly and the deep magenta of the blossoms made an interesting color combination against a bright blue sky.
