Swallowtail/ SOOC

Eastern tiger swallowtail in the York Regional Forest

A bit tattered, true, but still lovely!

The swallowtails are my favorite butterfly. I just don't see them very much anymore, and that makes me sad.

Jack said...

I don't know how you know these things, EG. Does the fauna have identifying tattoos up there?

I was out today and saw the largest butterfly I have ever seen. Not like this but still lovely.

Phil said...

Exactly right, a bit past its best but still a wonderful creature.

The leaf over the right wing makes it a tricky image, at first sight I thought a part of the wing was missing... Silly me. :)
God bless you!

I have seen a few of these EG, but they never seem to stop long enough for any photos.

I'm in awe of butterfly close-ups...am now into bird-shots, will join you for butterfly shots when I graduate from birds.
I like the shadows too. Great SOOC.
