For two days I’ve tried to capture a decent photo this Swallowtail in my garden. It fluttered around the lemon and orange trees in a frenzy. It just wouldn’t stop long enough for me to get a shot. I thought surely it would stop and rest for a moment to allow me to snap a few close ups. But after about 25 shots yesterday, this is the only one worth saving.
Last year I had much better success with this Gulf Fritillary Butterfly.
