Butterfly Tiger Lily

The big tiger lilies in the front have almost stopped blooming. I was looking out this morning and noticed a big swallowtail butterfly was enjoying the pollen. I grabbed my camera and eased out the door to get a capture. I was able to get a few without him even moving from this bloom.

When I saw him fly away, the front half of him was yellow with pollen. Very cool.

More of the little things in nature that will catch you off guard and make your day.

  1. I am starting a new assistant editor job online very soon and now found out last night I will be writing an article for an educational magazine. Butterflies mean new life and my new life seems to starting. Beautiful picture.

  2. What a nice capture you’ve got there! There are two plants in my yard that always attract a kind of butterfly to lay eggs there, hence we’ve got some caterpillars as well. (I don’t know what species they are.) I also always go to the park nearby and find some different species of butterflies there as well.
