TIGER SWALLOWTAIL (male) ON THISTLE . . .Finally the butterflies have arrived. Somewhat late this year but here none-the-less!

I was driving to town on a back road today when I saw a field of thistle. They were just loaded with Tiger Swallowtaila and a few other species. But the Swallowtails were perfuse. Our roads here in Tennessee are somewhat narrow with no shoulders to speak of. I had to drive maybe a quarter of a mile till I found a spot to safely park the car and had to walk back. But I think the images I got were well worth it.

Thanks for looking,
God bless,
Patti

The yellow and green background sets this insect off so well. Lovely presentation as well, Patti.
