Front Yard Swallowtail

I find Swallowtail Butterflies a challenge to photograph. Unlike monarchs, swallowtails are here there and everywhere. We had one in the front yard the other day that wasn’t so active so I was able to capture an image with my phone camera.

And a short video, even though I lost it for a second.

And here is Lizzie, she sits still.

Our little pomeranian, Kodi never sits still, he is here there and everywhere.

I’m linking with Saturday’s Critters. Check them out.

    Kodi taking his human for a stroll. Lizzie is testing out the table to see if it’s comfortable enough for a nap. Nice capture of the butterfly. Fantastic photos and have a wonderful weekend.

    It’s a pretty butterfly, I tried growing echinacea here but think it was the wrong time of year, they didnt last long.
