One of my favorite Butterflies

Category: Butterflies | Posted: Tue Oct 05, 2010 10:17 pm

Who am I kidding I am a butterfly nut and I like them all. But one of the hardest to catch for me was the Giant Yellow Swallowtail but I am a very patient person so I waited...and waited. And finally I did not even have to chase it all over the back pasture it landed right at my feet on my flowers.

Great capture...worth the wait. I had one in late summer, it was missing its hindwings but it stayed around the garden for about a week.
