Summertime Swallowtails

I was reading a book in Laurelhurst Park the other day, at one point I looked up and saw this Swallowtail Butterfly flying around nearby. At first, I didn’t realize I had my camera with me, because I was so engrossed in the book I was reading – The Forest Unseen: A Year’s Watch in Nature by Haskell, David George unknown edition [Hardcover(2012)] After a time, I finished the chapter I was on, looked up and saw the Butterfly again. It was at that time that I remembered, I brought my camera with me, since I was hoping to find some images of the many squirrels that roam the park. Ha, it was time to try and find some good images of the solitary Swallowtail swarming around the brush. These images are so-so, I know, but decent none-the-less.

I hope you like this week’s images, please share with your friends and connections.

    • Thanks for your comment! Yes, I agree, butterflies are difficult to photo, but with a lot of patience, it is possible!
