Multiple Shots Today.............
This random shot gave me an interesting image of the tops of the wings. It reminds me of two sails on a boat. The swallowtails vary in personality to my surprise. I have three swallowtails out in the garden right now. One of them is so scared of me that it heads to the sky as soon as it is aware of me. The other one is so spastic, jumping from flower to flower never really stopping in one place to feed for a long time. The one I do enjoy is this mellow fellow who feeds and meanders with ease from flower to flower. I could take hundreds of photos of it and it just doesn't leave the garden. I can see him out there from a window and have plenty of time to go and take pictures of it.
This is a shot of the newest butterfly that visits the flowers. His markings are different than the other two. When this butterfly saw me walking closer it immediately headed up into the air and towards the trumpet vine that grows in the pine tree at the neighbors. I just doesn't like to be around moving things with cameras.
