|A beautiful Black Swallowtail.|
Not much will get me moving from the comfort of my lawn chair on a hot summer afternoon like a butterfly flying by. I hop up so fast to go investigate I remind myself of the dog in the movie "Up" and his fascination with squirrels.
I took a bigger interest in butterflies last year and am always on the look out for a new species in our backyard or when we are out birding in the summer.
We had company for a BBQ on Saturday and I was treated to my first viewing of a Black Swallowtail in our yard. Rob had seen them before, but this was my first time seeing one in our yard, so I was pretty excited about it. Thanks to Dave for snapping a few pics for me!
