These photos are beautiful, Brenda! Swallowtails are so fast and their wings never stop fluttering (really fast) so it's difficult to get a good picture.

These are gorgeous! The Lantana is a wonderful background. I'm thinking I'll definitely have to plant some this summer.

Lovely study: the third picture being my favorite showing the fragility of life with the tiny missing wing tip and the swallowtail's environment.

Beautiful Brenda!
We used to call those flowers, Barbie bouquets...

Tremendous colors, patterns, shapes! Makes me wish I knew something about butterflies. Once I'm finished with birds, trees, and mammals . . .

Brenda!
I totally forgot to tell you something.
I bought the book "Townie" and forgot about it. I just saw it on my Kindle and will be starting it soon! Thanks so much for the tip!
