Gorgeous!! We don't seem to have the flowers to attract these any more. Our two "butterfly bushes" both died a couple years ago.

@thewatersphotos Ours is in trouble: “trunks” keep falling over -- weak roots? While it seems otherwise healthy enough, shooting out flower heads, it doesn't seem to be attracting the same volume and diversity of traffic it once did.
