This bush is a Bluebeard Longwood Blue, there are at least five of these in my neighborhood. On sunny days this summer, I have seen numerous Painted Lady Butterflies and Honeybees on them. Here are a few photos from one morning.
Skimmers are dragonflies that have a shorter body than their wingspan. They can be found around water perching on plants, they have a tendency to sit still. They are day flyers and eat from the nectar of colorful flowers such as asters and cone flowers. Here is a Twelve-spotted Skimmer and a Flame Skimmer.
Here is a cool dragonfly and damselfly. DAMSEL AND DRAGONFLIES
