Thanks, Friends. I couldn't believe how fast those wings were. It didn't pause for a moment. Got a lot of very unflattering positions before a few good ones. LOL

I have to agree with LarryD! You got one!!! I'm still hoping to find one on my phlox [like these flowers]like I did one year..I actually have a small patch that seems like it grew up by magic...while the other one I had several feet away had died out,and I see some new ones even coming up there! I know the swallowtails just love these! Very Beautiful,,and,,or course! I AM jealous!! :( at least,until I'm lucky enough to get my own! Should be an A/C here Max!

About Nikongranny

Nikongranny

Old, retired with lots of time on my hands and a Nikon. Lucky for me, there is a park just north of town that provides me with migrating birds and sunsets. Since joining this site, I have a new appreciation for this scenic world we live in. I especially love the comments from so many great people on here.
