Spring is not only a romantic season for birds, butterflies are in the mood for love too.
This female Great Mormon swallowtail butterfly was busy enjoying its nectar.
What she didn’t see was that love was in the air as she was being watched by a male Great Mormon.
The male went closer and closer when he realized that the female was too concentrated on the food to take notice of him.
Finally, he got her attention and both flew away together, presumably to a more private spot (away from my camera!).
These two Common Five-rings were not that lucky and they were caught in the act.
This pair of Common Sailors, however, were not shy in displaying their feelings towards each other on top of a tree.
It looks like we will be able to see many beautiful caterpillars very soon.
