Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly


I was so excited to get this photo! I have tried for months to capture a butterfly without the image being blurry but they are just too quick for me. But today, I was in the right place at the right time! While I was photographing my huge white Crepe Myrtle tree, this gorgeous Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly landed beautifully and stayed long enough for me to get this shot!!!

Isn't it something? 
The butterfly, that is. J

    I understand your joy in the capture.. these small winged things are hard to catch standing still.
    I just shared some hummingbird shots that gave me that same thrill. :)

  5. Wow. It is a spectacular shot! The Tiger Swallowtail has always been my favorite butterfly. A few weeks ago, I took my son to see butterflies hovering around a flowering bush (can't remember the name), and when I reached out to pick one up for him, he grabbed my hand and said, "no". It was so cute--he was afraid the butterfly would sting me (having been stung by a bee not long before that).

  9. Oh, this is so lovely! The light through the wing looks like stained glass. I enjoy trying to capture shots of butterflies, too, but I don't see many in my yard. I think I need to plant some things that they're attracted to.
