swallowtail sequence (3 images)

This swallowtail butterfly was having a grand old time in the salvia yesterday. It would feast for a few minutes, fly off to a nearby tree to digest, and then come back for more. It must have stuck around for at least half an hour.

    What a beautiful butterfly!! You captured it wonderfully with the gorgeous bokeh. And what a treat it was for the butterfly to keep coming back, and what a treat for you to be able to make these lovely images! The last one is funny πŸ™‚
