Bug of the Week: Giant Swallowtail Goldilocks

In the tale of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, the little girl is very picky.

Today we have a Goldilocks giant swallowtail butterfly flitting from flower to flower.

The pineapple sage is too small.

The brittlebush flower is too big.

The fairy duster flower must have been too soft.

Ah, the desert mallow is just right.

It must have more nectar than the rest.

Good from any angle.

No naps for this butterfly, though. Time to move on.
