…. I’m still on my butterfly theme … this is an Eastern Tiger Swallowtail and you can see they get their name from their hindwing tails. They usually fly quite high off the ground and prefer the very top parts of the butterfly bushes. I’d been trailing this guy for a few mornings and, as I’m super fussy about having a clean background in my photos, ..well, let’s just say being rather tall came in quite handy when he flew up to a high fir tree branch with nothing but a very blue sky in the background!
