“Although the temperatures are steamy today, the butterflies don't mind,” writes photographer Tim Stuchlik. “I just captured this bright-yellow Giant Cloudless Sulphur butterfly drinking from one of the butterfly favorites - the Mexican Sunflower, called Tithonia, which I plant from seeds each spring. Although the deer who visit our gardens nibbled on these plants for several months, they finally got tall enough to bloom and attract many August butterflies. The Giant Cloudless Sulphur doesn't like to be still too long, so I was lucky to capture this shot!”
