Wordless Wednesday: Tiger Swallowtail

Almost Wordless: This Eastern Tiger Swallowtail spent about an hour on my Spotted Joe-Pye Weed. Since I put in a patch of native prairie plants last year I have seen a lot of butterflies, bees and even hummingbirds.

    What a terrific shot. i don’t see many butterflies here, so obviously we have the wrong plants.

      The new plants have made a big difference in the number of butterflies and bees in the yard. I’m going to put some in the front yard for next year.

    Wow, you had to be fast to capture it with its wings open like that.

      This butterfly must have loved the nectar in those flowers. He would pause for several seconds at time.

    I think the tiger swallowtails are extremely vain. They’re the only butterflies that have ever posed for me. Great shot, Leslie!

    Beautiful shot; the contrast between the colors of the swallowtail and the plants is stunning.
