From the roadside

I was so excited to see this Tiger Swallowtail, I did not even notice the tattered wings...not even on the right. S/he is still a beauty in my book.

I tried to capture several butterflies, but this is the only one that was still enough for me to have any luck...and even with it I snapped two photos and it was gone.

Wow Rose... That is a gorgeous butterfly... I wouldn't have noticed her tattered wing either... What beautiful colors!!!

Hope you have a great Monday.
Hugs,

No one is perfect. It is a beautiful butterfly even with a tattered wing.

Hi Rose...you might want to check out Ocala Daily Photo...I think you'll find it interesting!

Jacob said...

Excellent! How come my butterflies always turn into flutterbys...bye, bye...and I miss the shot?

It is beautiful even with tattered wings. I don't know how their delicate wings manage to survive long enough to last their life time. I have seem more Tigers than usual this year. I have a couple hanging around my phlox right now.

Hello Rose.
I hope this finds you and yours all well...

What a beauty this is... it might be a tad tatty here and there but that add to the story... I've never seen a Swallow Tail.. but I think we do get the odd ones in the UK...

I've had a quick look around to catch up and seen your beautiful princess Lorelei... as lways it as been a pleasure.

Well, I am jealous! I have seen a few but NONE have stopped long enough to capture them with my lens.
