Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly and Turk's Cap Lily Wildflower by 


We love our Turk’s Cap Lilies, coddle them, watch for borers, spray with Liquid Fence (works wonderfully!), and we love our butterflies:>) These gorgeous wildflowers attract swallowtails especially, and they crawl up inside the flowers getting their bodies and wings covered in pollen.

Turk’s Cap Lily – Lilium superbum

Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly – Papilio glaucus

This picture was taken in Green Lane, Pennsylvania, USA, on July 18, 2011.

I love nature, science, poetry, prose, art, music – you name it! Now that I’m retired, time is mine to spend as I wish (pretty much), and I wish to take pictures of our natural world.

Bringing the outdoors in for others to see, especially those who may not get the opportunity to wander next to a pond, fish at the beach, or tramp in the woods, is a pleasure. I hope to build a window to the wonders of nature that fill our everyday lives.

    I have only seen a patch of these down the road and you can’t really get to them. When I shoot them, I have to zoom in on them from the road. I would love to have some in my yard.
