Tigers on the Loose

Uploaded by: ChrisAnthemum

Monday April 22, 2013

Westfield, NC (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: There were dozens of tiger swallowtails on my creeping phlox today; I tried to get some group shots but had better luck with the single ones. Uncropped; they allowed me to get this close because they were apparently intoxicated with the nectar and paid little attention to me.

Thank you very much, Jan and swreader!

Reader, if you look at the kinds of photos chosen for WV, you will see they are much more weather oriented than this photo is. I can't think I've ever seen a simple image of flowers and insects in a WV collection. Still, nothing is impossible, I guess! Thanks for the good wishes, and glad you like my photo!

Congrats again on the Blue Border! Now if they just select it for one of the world view pictures next week (which it certainly deserves), I'll be pleased for you and :) think they have good taste.

You and the Tigers really deserve an Approver's Choice for this photo. Granted, they were so busy drinking, they allowed you to take an incredible and spectacular photo! I gave you a 10 last night, but was too tired when I finished to write this up. But congratulations on a wonderful photo!
