Giant Swallowtail

Giant Swallowtails are common garden visitors in low deserts cities such as El Centro, Yuma and Phoenix. They are usually near the citrus trees that host “orange dogs”, a common name for their caterpillars, which look like moving bird droppings. Their chrysalids are a shade of tan, brown and green, blending with the leaves and stems of citrus trees.

Giant Swallowtails are, as the name suggests, quite large in wingspan. Adults are fond of lantana fowers and zinnias both common in city gardens.

Commonly seen in the west, less commonly northward and eastward. Flight is March through November

My goal is to get my name out there among the vast ocean of Natural photographers. To be known for my skill with a Point & Shoot~

My images are not photo shopped. They have only been adjusted with basic sharpening, contrasting & saturation techniques. I believe that in order to appreciate Nature, you have to capture it as it is, naturally.

    Wonderful collage Kimberly. I was surprised when I learned that even Butterflys will migrate great distances, across even continents. A Marvelous creature up close as well. Beautiful work Kimberly.
