Hot and Humid!
Eastern Swallowtail, yellow form

Hot and humid today,
looks like the butterfles are returning
All very twitchy,
Fluttery
Not settling anywhere.

They are going to have to work these flowers with more concentration if I am to get an image totally in focus at 90 degree plus heat!

A stunning close up of this beautiful butterfly, the detail and colours are simply sublime. The weather here is awful and there are hardly any butterflies around at the moment apart from the cabbage whites which seem undeterred, i've even seen some flying in the pouring rain!
