Giant Swallowtail

Posted on Monday 13 July 2009

It’s been awhile since I’ve done much with my camera.  Saturday evening, though, a Giant Swallowtail came looking for someplace to spend the night.

Swallowtail III

Lucky for me, s/he was still there in the morning, when I had some light.

From Wikipedia:  “The Giant Swallowtail Butterfly (Papilio cresphontes) is a swallowtail butterfly common in various parts of North America, particularly the south and east. With a wingspan of about 10-16 cm[1] , it is the largest butterfly in the United States.”

Beautiful, yes?

Swallowtail I
