What fascinates me is the approach-avoidance conflict we seem to have with these plants. Some people plant them in gardens to attract butterflies, and even call them Butterfly Weed. But when they grow too close to pavement, and the weed eaters come along, everything goes. During these past few years where I live, it seems that the weed eating has intensified. This could be my imagination, but when I look at my past several years of blogging around this time of year, I finding many of my favorite photography spots are devoid of my favorite subjects. Always looking recently weed eaten, the flowers are often replaced by beverage containers and shotgun shells. Being a weed myself, I have a lot of empathy for all the others.

being tended by a species of ant that feeds on their nectar. To be continued tomorrow, and hopefully every day afterward for quite a while. Thanks for a great morning, Morgan and Moe.
