Butterflies and Azeleas

There are 2 large Azaleas in front of our house. They are in a large flower bed that I have other plans for (one day) and are kind of scraggly looking. I had decided to dig them out. Well they are covered with blooms. We noticed the other day that these two bushes had attracted bunches of bees and butterflies. I took my camera out to try to get some pictures. I haven't had a lot of luck with getting good butterfly pictures in the past. These guys were so interested in feeding that I was able to get a couple.
This is the first video I ever put up on blogger.  Sorry it's not in the right place.  This is 2 butterflies fighting over the blooms.  They fought all over our front yard for the longest time!


  1. Great video! I've seen butterflies dancing like that before, but never thought about them fighting over the blooms. Beautiful azaleas.
