The Cloudless Sulphur (Phoebis sennae) butterfly visits the Butterfly Weed (Asclepias tuberosa L.).
I got a little sunburn on the hot day that I took this photo. With not even a hat on my head, it was not my intention to even stop there with the sun beating down but the yellow caught my eye and I couldn’t resist. I had so much fun watching this butterfly that I totally forgot that time was passing.
Photo taken in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina, USA in Macon County near the small town of Franklin.
