Wild Bergamot (Monarda fistulosa)

Friday, June 25th, 2010

I took a drive through Dolans Lake a couple of weeks ago and found lots of wildflowers.  This “Wild Bergamot” was just gorgeous.  The bees and butterflies were lovin’ it!   They are “Fritillary Butterflies” …. these are the “Aphrodite Fritillary” (Speyeria aphrodite)
