Worth the Wait ~ Day 242

I have been waiting all summer long for the butterflies to visit. Finally a black swallowtail came yesterday. He was fluttering around so fast it was a challenge to get a good photo. I had to sit for several minutes to get this one. These are one of my favorite butterflies. They are very large and such pretty markings. As my butterfly bush grows I hope to have many more to share.


The Eastern Swallowtail butterflies are what I see in the garden. They come in different colors. The yellow Tiger swallowtail and the Black Swallowtail are the two I see. Many swallowtails mimic the coloration and patterns of butterflies that are protected by a bad taste. Amazing the things nature has to do for survival.

Enjoy nature photography. Amateur self-taught photographer and love every minute of the photos from my yard and Dustin's garden. Sunset views from my deck are very peaceful to watch, capture and share. I have two cats, Brendel and the Dude. I share both special and funny moments I capture of them with you.

Also enjoy seeing and reading your posts from all over the world.
