Tiger Swallowtail


I think this butterfly was finishing emerging when I found it---bad place in the lamium to be struggling about-- He may have injured one wing--- tho, when it flew off it was strong and swift!


Special thanks to Walter (gajewski) Annette (annettep36] and Mark (marktc) for their incredible morning wake up call!!! THREE User Awards before breakfast! ( for Plant Form: 2}

My internet is fading and mushy this evening-- I may loose it again-- will attempt to catch up with you tomorrow......... if........

A beautiful shot of this swallowtail - detail is superb. I'm glad she was able to fly, saved you from having to repair a wing.

Glad to hear the poppies are coming up for you Smile
