We did some yard work a few days ago, and guess what settled on our fence and stayed there for at least fifteen minutes (long enough to go inside and get cameras)?

Swallowtail Butterfly

Swallowtail Butterfly

So pretty, and so big for a butterfly – at least half the size of my hand.

  1. What a beauty Sharon. And how nice of it to hang around for you.

  2. What good manners this little beauty has!

  3. That’s beautiful! My granddaughter Amelia is seeing everything for the first as she’s only 17 months and there are so many awe and wonder moments.

  4. The closer you look, the more astonishing the mini-beasts become. Lucky you to get up close!

    • We felt very lucky! (It posed for both my husband and me – even more amazing than posing for one of us.) I love the textured way the blue sections blend into the rest of the pattern.
