Common Lime Party

Our okra plants are attracting swarms of the Common Lime Butterfly (Papilio demoleus). The base color of the butterfly appears almost white in the pictures; it actually is a beautiful pale lemon yellow.

Here is a flower of the okra (called the lady's finger in india):

Those butterflies make the okra plant even more beautiful. Thanks for these great photos. Hope you're enjoying a good harvest too. I crave okra here in the Pacific Northwest and may need a green house to grow enough to satisfy my desires.
