Seen Around

Eastern Tiger Swallowtail (missing some wings on both sides)


Pipevine Swallowtail (look at that blue in the sunlight!)

Variegated Fritillary?

Giant Swallowtail

This is a blurry shot of the same Giant Swallowtail in the photo above.  I chased this butterfly around the garden for several minutes because I wanted to get a good photo for identification.  It seemed to be very aware of my presence and eventually tired of me and left the yard.  Doesn't it look ghostly?

What beautiful pictures! I would have a hard time leaving the window in your kitchen if it were my house, with the lovely view of the butterfly garden! Thank you for sharing these pictures!

These are very cool! I love the ghostly one. I have been viewing your blog in flipbook on my ipad and I can't figure out the comment function there. Drat. Technology.
