The Eastern Tiger Swallowtails are out in full force and I am overjoyed. This is the first of what I hope to be many shots of these wonderful butterflies this season. Photographed May 19, 2009. Enjoy! Len

They are so beautiful Len, wonderful shot! I can’t seem to get one to stay still for a shot like this!Carolyn
Thank you Carolyn. I’ve been very fortunate and have had great luck with these guys. Last spring, I had one actually cross my open palm as he walked from one blossom to another. I find if you just stay around them, they get used to you being there and you can get some wonderful close-up shots of them. Give it a try! Thanks again. Len
Thank you. I’m glad you liked it. Len
Wonderful shot & happy days ahead for you.j
