Fancy Bug

To go along with TNFisher's hummingbirds, here is a fancy bug, a Spicebush Swallowtail butterfly, visiting our weeds (aka volunteer lantana that refuses to be killed) the other day.

This is one of those instances where equipment can, and frequently does, make a difference. TN has a professional level camera and lenses, while I have an entry level camera and lenses. Chasing things like butterflies and hummingbirds pushes my gear pretty much to its limit.

Great pics, Rosemary. As you know, I love lantana, and butterflies
Unfortunately, we haven't seen many butterflies here yet which is very odd for this time of year. We have 4 butterfly bushes, several lantana, and other flowers to attract them but for whatever reason, they are scarce here this year.



She is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are her life, her love, her leader.
She will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of her heart. You owe it to her to be worthy of such devotion.

I have an entry level camera too (though probably a bit more "entry" than yours), but my pics don't even approach these in quality unless I get really lucky. I think there is something to be said for the skill of the photographer in addition to their equipment.

Very nice.

WOW! Those are great pictures Rosemary!

Swallowtails are some of my favorites. This one has some great colors and frills.
