butterfly, tailed emporer, my garden

Got the bug!
Am I obsessive?
Camera shutter worn out!
Computer suffering overload!
Did I take another 500 photos today?
Back up falling behind? :(
Can’t decide what to upload?
Yes that’s me!

    Beautiful markings and colour. Great capture Gabe.

  • Thanks again Ralph, this butterfly was on my Powton Tree. I found the caterpillar living in my Gleditsia tree so I’m waiting for the summer to see if I can get anymore photos of this type of butterfly! :)

    Hi Gabe, Great picture and framing. I always know this as a Zodiac Moth. Glad to see that it has a proper name and is a butterfly and not a moth.

  • Hi Alwyn, thanks buddy! I don’t know this zodiac moth, might have to look it up! This butterfly visits my garden now for the last 3 years, well since I’ve noticed it.

    Gabe :)
