Love ur photos, thank you. Live in Lower Hudson Valley, NY & have seen this little beauty years ago & only once in my life, when one suddenly landed in my yard on a yellow dandelion blossom. Totally unexpectedly & have never seen one again but remember that ‘picture’ vividly.

Sweet shots. I just got one in a blooming apple tree. They are not common here, though not rare (MAIne).
