  1. Great mid-flight shots of the swallowtail. I like the dark shading set against the muted tones of the ground, a dark flying machine.

  2. Wonderful photos. You are really good. You are lucky to still have butterflies. Ours are all gone since it started freezing every night.

  3. Thank you for your comments.
    @catsynth: I love it when I capture flight, it's so fascinating.
    @Karen: Hi there! Happy Thanksgiving! No, we are covered in snow. This photo was from July. I'm just now getting to the edits for July!
    @Stratoz: thank you so much for stopping by!
