    Thank you so much for stopping by my playground. It’s much appreciated. That butterfly is beautiful. Excellent picture. Also, I will be adding you to my side bar. Congrats for whatever it is worth as you made the 1000th comment on my blog for August. I always feature the person that makes that comment. It will be announced with my Sunday Stealing post. Thanks for commenting 🙂 Aloha

    I would like to catch (with my camera!) such a beautiful butterfly. I like the composition of the first image, but the ‘portrait’ in the second is gorgeous.

    He’s (she’s? How does one know, anyway?) beautiful! Now that you mention it, I haven’t seen any butterflies around here all month. How odd.

    I checked – it is a HE. The female Tiger Swallowtail has very little yellow – it is mostly black. The tiger colored one is male 🙂 We learn every day 🙂

    What a beautiful photos you have captured of the tiger swallowtail butterfly. He did such a good job posing for you! My camera is not so quick at taking butterfly photographs. Maybe when I get my new SLR camera this week I’ll have better luck.
