Swallowtail Butterfly by swaby
Clear

Currently unavailable for purchase



As I was waiting for Sota to do her evening duties this beautiful Swallowtail flew in and landed on flowers growing in an old tub on my patio. I ran inside and got my camera hoping it was still there when I returned. This was my favorite shot out of five that I took before it flew off and was on its merry way!
