it's wonderful when the honeybell is in bloom. the smell is out of this world, every bee in the south part of the county must be here, and then there are visitors like this...
Yep until they lay the eggs on the tree and the cats eat your leaves:)
Thanks for the awesome pic, sign of spring! Hope to see some up this way soon. The cats are welcome to eat whatever they want!
& that looks like a Tiger Swallowtail to me - not the Giant (which is the 1 w/ larvae that feeds on citrus) - Giants do not have blue on their upper wings.
P.S. IMPE, Giant Swallowtail larvae do not seem to eat enough to do harm to my trees.
