Canada Thistle: Butterfly, fly and bumblebee

Full house at Thistle Diner: The yellow butterfly 
sees the bumblebee and slowly withdraws. 

Butterfly on Prairie Wildflower.

The sequel to this picture — with the butterfly's proboscis fully recoiled, as she readies to fly away — is posted on LatitudeDrifts.

Is it just me, or does this butterfly look ever-so-slightly apprehensive?
