This year's potential Black Swallowtail Butterfly, he is gnawing on some dill that came up in my garlic patch. I hope there will be more but so far I've only seen the one.

I love butterflies. This swallowtail was a frequent visitor to my butterfly bush in the garden. The background was the actual sky.

Our Alstromeria was in beautiful full bloom that day when I spotted this Swallowtail Butterfly with his "nose" in the Alstromeria blossom. I ran to get my camera, and took this photo.

Early morning and the swallowtail had landed on the picotee sky flowers tree blossoms. It is as though the butterfly had posed for the photo, wings up stretched, body showing in the early light.

The light coursing through its wings gave a wonderful view of the beauty of its wing markings.

This Swallowtail Butterfly just came in and landed on our west garden fence one afternoon. I always have a camera close by in case something like this happens. Well, I got the photo, and I like it a lot.

Spring is here and it will soon be butterfly time. This is a Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly on our Butterfly Bush. It is amazing how many butterflies are attracted to this bush.

This beautiful black swallowtail butterfly was stuck on my screen this morning, when I got up and opened the blinds. I went outside and took his picture before rescuing him.

My Black Swallowtail Butterfly friend, she laid some eggs on my dill and the her children hung out for awhile to entertain me. The caterpillars only eat dill or parsley but the butterflies seem to like a lot more, it is enjoying some Oregano in this picture.

WOW, stunning! This was just awesome a slice of Heaven someone posted. To have such butterfly share her family with you.It was truly a blessing to read. I had a rough day and I thought I would go through some of my TF mail I had not seen and this was just touching and uplifting. Thank you for sharing. (12/09/2008)

This guy was in my garden, so I took a series of them using the multi-burst feature (digital) and got one with it's wings open! I used the normal lens with high speed.

Great picture! My 5 year old daughter has a fascination with butterflies so she gave you a vote today. Now when I cannot find my camera, I'll know where to look.

It was the first day of using my new camera when I spotted a Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly in our garden. The butterfly flew from flower to flower allowing me plenty of time to take quite a few pictures.

This picture is one of my favourites.

This swallowtail sat at the bottom corner of the door frame at my job. I was able to take several beautiful pictures.
