It finally happened! - I've been trying almost all summer long to get a picture of a Swallowtail Butterfly. There have been plenty of them flying around but none would ever land long enough for me to take a picture.
Just when I thought I'd never capture one with my camera low and behold as I was getting ready to go somewhere and was pulling out of the driveway one flew by and landed on some of my mom's flowers. Thankfully I had the camera with me and was able to quickly get out and snap some shots before it flew off. I was so excited and hope you enjoy my photos.
I tried to find out which Swallowtail this is but there are a number of swallowtail species. Near as I could find this looks closest to the W. Tiger Swallowtail. If you know exactly the species of Swallowtail please let me know. I live in Washington State if that helps.
Take care and thanks for visiting.
