Irish Eyes & Butterflies

Irish Eyes, according to a gal at the nursery where I bought this plant, are related to Black-eyed Susans. They get their name because instead of having a dark brown or black center, they have a green one. I don't want to be skeptical, but the center looks yellow to me!I noticed that butterfly on my plant about two weeks ago. He stayed on that same flower almost 10 minutes, and I was able to run in the house and find my point and shoot camera. I set it on a macro setting, so I was able to get very close to him. He just concentrated on getting his pollen, so I guess he didn't mind me too much.
