A few of my favourite things..

Orchard Swallowtail

Orchard Swallowtails are large, ponderous fliers.  I was so excited to see one at our house (quite unusual) that I am guilty of recording, more than composing, with these shots.  After the butterfly was flown, and the pictures loading, I deeply regretted not capturing this second shot with a 30 degree rotation.

Still, I am happy to have had the opportunity to meet this beauty.

This third was taken at my parents house, where they  more want to visit.
