STOPS ALONG THE WAY

EYE TO EYE

Giant SwallowtailWe got to the park in the early morning when it was still cool and watched as the swallowtail landed on the plant. If we had been an hour later it would have led us on a merry chase; as the temperature warms, butterflies speed up and don’t stay still for long. We see a few of these butterflies every year, always a pleasure.

  5. Sweet shot, Belinda! 🙂 Yes, the fragility of butterfly wings makes them susceptible to fragmentation; factors that influence this is the way a particular butterfly tends to land, plus genetics.

  9. What a magnificent design on his wings. But oops! Did you notice he has a little piece missing on the end of his right wing? I wonder how he did that.
