Returning Butterflies

I mentioned in a past blog about my potted citrus trees, they are grapefruit trees to tell the truth, and how every year a swallow lays it eggs on it leaves and has done so for the past three years.  Well today I caught one in action and was available to get a shot of it to share.  This also fits in with establishing an eco system in your yard.

The returning butterflies seem to get bigger every year also.  Take a look.

Now it is long an a little dizzying but it is worth it to see the size of this butterfly and see it lay it’s eggs on the underside of the grapefruit leaves.
