Eastern Swallow Tails and Dragonflies of the Vermilon River. A Post to My World Tuesday.



Continuing in the same vein, here's another taste of summer. I'm guessing that both black butterflies are the dark morph females, but if you'll notice the base colours are different.If any one knows differently, let me know.

  9. Those are great shots. Having tried many times to get good butterfly shots, I can only imagine how much patience it took go get them.
