When I was down by the duck pond last Sunday, this Swallowtail butterfly was nice enough to pose for a few pictures. I like the contrast between the yellow in the butterfly’s wings and the purple of the flower. I couldn’t have asked for these to come out any better than they did. There was a bright yellow and orange bird that I had been trying in vain to get a picture of when this little guy showed up. My photography excursion was saved by this butterfly.
