Blue Triangle Butterfly – Graphium sarpedon

Finally he landed! Yeah! :) This little fella is normally too busy to stop. They love my Camphor Laurel trees. Found him sitting on my honeysuckle.

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?
Bird flew away!
I missed the shot again! :(
Stick to slow moving subjects! :)
Yes that’s me!

    Splendid capture! Lucky you to have these in your garden. Congrats on the feature

  • Awwh thanks Bonnie! :) Yes I have a few camphor laurel trees in my front garden, which the Blue Triangle lays their eggs on. This summer has been extremely muggy here so we’ve had a lot of butterflies. I’ve counted over 9 species of butterfly, I still haven’t captured every one yet.

    How beautiful. We do not have these beauties here but we do have some lovely Butterflies here. I saw a Monarch today. They are just coming back since winter. Brenda
