Red Bird of Paradise (Caesalpinia pulcherrima)
Red Bird of Paradise (Caesalpinia pulcherrima) attracts butterflies and bees. Yesterday morning, little greenish-yellow butterflies were feeding on the blooms of the shrubs in our front yard. I know very little about butterflies, but I believe they're Cloudless Sulphurs (Phoebis sennae).A couple of Carpenter Bees came by as I was trying to photograph the butterflies.
