Woooohoooo, I love stepping out in the back yard this year. Everytime I do many different kinds of butterflies are flitting around all over the flowers. At least half a dozen of the Cabbage Whites and several Hackberry butterflies, both of which are hard to catch in pictures because they move so quickly and are hard to sneak up on. This is a Tiger Swallowtail A female Black Swallowtail, she has more blue on the hindwing than the male and possibly I will have more caterpillars showing up next year with her visiting this year. She is what comes from the caterpillars I found munching on the Fennel the other day. This one is a Buckeye, a pretty fuzzy picture since I had to stay back a ways from him, they are pretty skittish.
