This Giant Swallowtail was really enjoying the Fall-Like weather!

With Autumn just around the corner we are starting to see many more butterflies near our home!

Beautiful capture Jeff. We had a lot of these guys this summer, and they're not really supposed to be in NY, so it was a treat

An incredible shot Jeff. I have been out photographing flowers this morning and have had so much trouble keeping the flower in focus and here you have managed to keep flower and butterfly so sharp. I hope we see this again.

WOW Jeff! This is one beautiful butterfly. When I saw the thumbnail, this beauty stood out. You really got the colors so vivid, so powerful but at the same time you never sacrificed the sharpness of the details of its features. Can't go wrong with butterflies and flowers. Such a gorgeous picture my friend.
