Black Swallowtail Butterfly

Saw this flying around the garden during a brief clearing of the storm clouds. Grabbed my camera and got these photos.

It looks like there are three out there now on the butterfly bush but it also looks like it is going to rain again so I will enjoy them from the window.


  1. Awesome photos, Susan! I have tried to capture butterflies with my camera but none have come out very well. I'll just enjoy yours :)

    1. thank you Anne. I think the trick is to wait for them to come back to where they were. I scared them off on approach but noticed they would eventually come back so waited a bit. My patience isn't that great though. I can't wait long enough for a hummingbird to return!
