These past weeks, most of my attention has been on the hummingbirds in our yards. However, I've noticed that we've also been getting a lot of insect activity. Gulf Fritillary and Giant Swallowtail butterflies have been frequent visitors, and our flowers are finally attracting honeybees for the first time in months.
We've had lots of dragonflies, too. In fact, I've seen many more dragonflies in our yards and generally in our area this summer than I've ever seen before. I've always assumed that there would be more dragonflies during wet spells but that clearly isn't the case this year.
