One Butterfly

Well, you won't see a card (or a pair of paper shoes) in this post.  I interrupted my crafting to go outside and water a few potted plants.  And...pull a few of the gazillion weeds in the flower beds.  While I was out there I had a beautiful visitor.  I hurried inside to grab my camera.  But, I was sure my visitor would leave before I returned.  Ahh  :)  Still there!

I took 23 photos of him (or her?), but I managed to pair it down to 5 for this

What did I tell you?  Gorgeous, right?

I don't know very much about butterflies, so if you can identify it, please leave a comment.  I would love to learn more about it!

Thanks for stopping to take a look today!

  2. Great shots! We just got a new camera for shots just like these. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Hi Susie, these photos are fabulous! I love this elegant, swift butterfly! TFS

  4. Oops, forgot to say, but you probably know by now that it is a Swallowtail. They appear abundantly in Europe as well.


Please leave a comment...I love to read them!
