I was stalking damselflies when I lifted my gaze and saw THIS newly emerged tiger swallowtail looking like a spot of sunshine on a wild blueberry branch overhanging the creek.
I had a hiking staff with me (it’s snake season), and by steps got closer. It left three times to return to the same spot. Lucky for me! I didn’t even get stung by fire ants on my bare feet.
