During the quiet peace on the dirt road, I spent time with this lovely butterfly. Here are just a few of the shots I took as it flew and landed numerous times - all within my view. A link to more information is posted below in case you would like to learn more.

Absolutely beautiful Ms. G!! Each and every photo. Those swallowtails sure do like the thistle, don't they? [I see them and other species of the same family favoring the thistle blossoms]ReplyDelete
