Swamp Milkweed



The Swamp Milkweed has been flourishing with the wet weather.  
It has spread in the garden around the patio and is attracting a great variety of butterflies and bees.
The photos above and below are of a hummingbird moth.


Below is a Giant Swallowtail.


The Giant Swallowtail is the largest butterfly species in Ohio and is uncommon in developed areas.
This is the first time I have seen either of these species.
