I truly think that there is more beauty in imperfection than perfection, for it is the imperfect things that truly make us beautiful. --me

Black Swallowtail

I could have spent hours and taken countless pictures of the butterflies out at the Sarett Nature Center. And this was all within steps of where I parked the car. I saw at least five of these beautiful Black Swallowtail butterflies fluttering around. I was in awe of the fact that I saw them all at the same time. I also saw a Hummingbird Clearwing Moth but was unable to get a clear picture of it. While there were not many different types of butterflies and moths around that day, I could have take a memory card full of the few that were there had I allowed myself. It was great and I look forward to my next trip to a nature center in hopes of seeing more butterflies and possibly some birds on this future trip. I could hear birds everywhere but was unable to spot them except for the few that zipped by so quickly you almost didn't notice them until they were gone. Have a happy Tuesday.

Lovely pictures of a pristine specimen! So, so jealous! I got a butterfly picture yesterday and will post it one of these days just to show everyone how they don't land for me. I was chasing down a ditch. It's the best I've ever gotten, but it, and me were moving. So I live vicariously through people like you!

That is a very pretty butterfly. I'm always amazed at just how pretty some butterflies are,and very happy when one lands close enough to photograph. Very nice images.

These are beautiful butterfly photos in this post and the one before it. I never have any lucky when I try to capture them with my camera. Well done.
Hugs and blessings,
