Critters in the garden

Swallowtail butterfly on my butterfly bush
My garden is looking a little bedraggled lately. But the butterfly bushes are doing great and attracting lots of butterflies, hummingbirds and even a couple of hummingbird moths.  I even had a Freudian slip a couple days ago and called this plant my hummingbird bush.  Unfortunately I haven't been able to capture the hummingbirds on camera.

My husband spotted this guy on the shed just before sunset. He was gone by the next morning. Don't you wonder what they eat?
