Butterflies in Bloom

It's a smorgasbord for butterflies this year, but they mostly like the Lantana. I placed the pots on my patio table so I can spy them--and hummingbirds--feeding from my kitchen window. 
Monarchs are plentiful, but I've yet to find them on my milkweed plants.
Black swallowtail--there are numerous Eastern tiger swallowtails also (who have more yellow), but not caught on camera.
This red spotted purple butterfly (I think) was feeding on these large rotting mushrooms--who knew?
