It’s monarch butterfly season in downtown Bloomington.
That’s because the pollinator plantings in the flower beds at the intersections of Bloomington’s downtown courthouse square are working their magic again this year.
Here’s some photos, all taken in the last week or so.
I threw in the goldfinch, because he was flitting around the courthouse grounds when I had my camera out. Besides butterflies and the goldfinch, there’s also a bunch of shots of bumble bees. On the courthouse square…bees. Bees….square. That’s an easy joke just half a block away from where I live. Enjoy.
