A Female Tiger Swallowtail
Pterourus glaucus 3-5.5 inch wingspan

This butterfly appears in many forms----both black and yellow--- The dense blue patches along the bottom hind wings indicate that this is probably a female, yellow form. This one and several new varieties appeared in our area this week, but the best news is there are also Tiger Swallowtail caterpillars munching my parsley!

Tried my luck with close ups on butterflies this summer. My admiration for pictures like this has grown even higher.

Oh boy...now this is something else, Jennnn. I can't think of a word which'd do this justice. Good grief. The detail, light and focus are just divine.

BRAVO.
