Dipping into sweet nectar

Last Wednesday I published photographs of the Citrus Swallowtail butterfly (I had to search a butterfly book to find it’s name!) and browsing through the set of photos I took, I noticed it’s tongue disappearing into the centre of the plumbago’s flower.  I’ve cropped the photos and sharpened one or two to make it easier to see …

This last one is a little blurry but I had to add it as I couldn’t believe how long that tongue actually is !!!!!!    .. and there’s still more of it buried in the flower ..

…makes you wonder where it all fits inside the head !!!!

Even though the post is not ‘wordless’ , I’m going to join Wordless Wednesday here and here as it’s a kind of follow-on from last week 😉

  2. We just visited our local butterfly house yesterday – it was AWESOME! They normally have 2,000 butterflies flying free in the conservatory but during the month of March they add an additional 3,000 Blue Morpho’s. It was amazingly awesome. Great pics!
