Hot and Humid!

Hot and Humid!
Eastern Swallowtail, yellow form

Hot and humid today,
looks like the butterfles are returning
All very twitchy,
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!

******* *.* ******* Thank you to Dianna, Photophantom and Herge88 for recent User Awards---
and all the many, many votes on my recent images!
So glad you are enjoying them!

WOW...look at the light coming through the wing! This is one fanTAStic capture, Jennnn. And such a perfect marriage of colour, that butterfly and the flowers.

Just old cloud and rain for us. More of the same for the rest of the week and this is what is called summer. This is beautiful - really lifts the mood.

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!
