A swallowtail alighted on the flowering weeds around me while I was photographing lotus flowers.

    Beautiful Capture. Just remember in gardening books lots of "WEEDS " are referred to as PERENNIALS ;o)

They are beautiful contrasted against the Ironweed flowers. Did you realize Chris that another tiger swallowtail is posted right before yours?

Thanks, Kara! I liked the darkening as well, to make the butterfly leap out.
