POLLEN ENCRUSTED SWALLOWTAIL ON BUTTERFLY BUSH . . .Another from the butterfly garden yesterday before the thunderstorms. The butterfly garden has been filled with butterflies, small, large, lots of kinds. Too many to count! Lucky me! I must say over the past couple years I have learned a little about gaining their trust (they actually get used to you), and being able to get right in amongst them. The sun was brighter than I would have liked, unfortunately that is when they enjoy being out and about most! I have compensated as best I could.

Thanks for looking,
God bless,
Patti

Given the lighting conditions you mention you have managed a very fine shot of this swallowtail and it's perch, Patti.
