Of all the beautiful butterflies the world has to offer, my favorite would be the Tiger Swallowtail. The wings are glorious – absolute perfection! And the body itself, with it’s yellow with black markings, is a work of art.
As I stepped out on the deck this gorgeous creature appeared and fed from the same flower for less than a minute – but long enough for me to take 24 quick shots! It was hard to choose which photos to use for the blog! I love this one because his back actually looks hairy!
Our Butterfly Bushes have indeed lived up to their name this year! They have drawn quite a variety of butterflies, moths and hummingbirds! I just haven’t been quick enough to get a shot of a hummingbird yet!
Notice the shadow where the wings overlap.
What a way to begin the day! I am blessed!
