Carol, Your photos of the butterflies are beautiful, I like the color of the foxgloves and the markings played against that of the Swallowtail butterfly. Just lovely. Carol

Thank you for beginning my day with a smile! Hope you have a terrific weekend.

What an experience! Let's hope we do get to trade sightings.

We'll trade sightings - I get a black swallowtail and you get a spicebush:>). This one was freshly hatched and had just finished pumping up her wings. After the photo, I coaxed her onto my finger for a moment. So delicate! Then she was off to find a boyfriend.
