Tiger Swallowtail

Just before sunset the sky began to clear.

The female Tiger Swallowtail floated in.
She danced for a minute before heading on to her resting place.
I too must rest.

You need to publish your photographs - somewhere. Did I ever call them "exquisite and downright perfect"?

Dear Mary,
Thank you! This photo was me being "artsy"! The light was fading and the butterfly and the iris looked so prteey. I am thrilled you enjoy the photos. They are fun to do.
I have thought about doing something with the photos but then a Grosbeak comes and I am taken away again.
I do have thousands!

love it.

Dearest Sprite,
I loved the way the light was on the flower and the washed out look of the Swallowtail and the detail of the iris.
I might do a few more "artsy" things. I see all sorts of them everyday. Sometimes I need a critter to stay a lttle bit longer so I can think about how to do the picture.
This is my Female Tiger Swallowtail friend.
