swallowtail

By jdh2
This is a tiger swallowtail butterfly taken in my back yard. The weather has been quite nice lately with afternoon temperatures about 80 degrees Farenheit. The butterflies have been showing up with birds becoming quite active and hummingbirds to soon follow. Taken with Nikon D-300, 18-200 vr, f/6.3, 1/320 sec.

Super shot, but I am very jealous as I shiver up here in the North east of England

Brr only 4 degrees C here, had a sprinkling of snow too. Wish I was there!!

These are wonderful butterflies, and so big too. I saw them and hummingbirds on my visit to the States last July.
Well done.
