This butterfly is called Zitronenfalter in German. Lemon butterfly. The literal translation from English to German would be Schwefelfalter. That does sound smelly and not as nice? The butterflies are attacing my butterfly bush these days 😀

This is more a fly than a bee, but it is helpful, too. The bindweed is a weed, I know, but I like to keep some of them in the garden. The blossoms are beautiful and the insects like them.
