Peredovik sunflowers a nectar source?
When I walked into the back yard this morning it was a glorious butterfly day. 5 monarchs, 1 BST, and one red admiral fluttering around the yard. (That is the most monarchs I have ever seen in my yard PRE liatris blooms...can't wait until it blooms in a week or so!)
as I walked by our Peredovik Sunflowers I had to do a double take. There was a monarch nectaring (I saw the proboscis) on them. It went to two of the flowers.
Is this common? Was he/she just checking it out? I planted those for the birds...did not expect any butterflies nectaring from it!
