Fluttering and Flirty

Last weekend marked the last weekend of the summer that The Chicago Botanic Gardens featured the butterfly tent before the winter.  I went to go see the numerous variations of butterflies they have from many different countries.  Did you know they like to eat fruit that is past ripe?  Neither did I! but they like the sugar water.  I guess we both have something in common, a sweet tooth.  I tried to capture all my favorites from the day, but some of them were constantly fluttering around and I was not fast enough.  There are a few pictures from the vegetable garden and other flowers that I enjoyed.  The tree is a pear or apple tree that they groom to grow horizontally to save space.
