Thanks for sharing! 🙂
How special. Great shots.
Thanks, the butterflies don’t stay still very long so I was happy the pictures turned out ok.
Great shots! I have planted for butterflies, but there have not been many around here for a few years. It is good to see them elsewhere.
I’m sorry your butterflies are missing. This year I’ve seen some frequently but only a few at a time.
What a beauty.
So nice to have them in the garden.
Beautiful, aren’t they? And what great shots too!
Thanks, the butterflies really didn’t want me near them so wouldn’t cooperate much.
I consider myself lucky if I get just one shot of a butterfly before it flits off – you got a whole series of beautiful shots!
Thank you Kris. It was nice to get this set of images, just couldn’t get as close as I’d wanted and never could get the blue one to settle down for me.
Very pretty! The Swallowtails have been plentiful this summer. 🙂 This one is very happy on your Lantana.
Beth, glad you’re seeing lots of swallowtails this summer. They love to work the lantana and then head over to the zinnias, then repeat.
Nice shots. The butterflies rarely cooperate, so I know how hard these photos are!
Have been following them around all summer but mostly elusive.
Great photos! Just saw a Black Swallowtail on the Zinnias outside today.
Thanks Jason. It’s been a good year for swallowtails.
I’ve seen only a few around here.
