Eastern Tiger Swallowtail (Camera Critters)

The Eastern Tiger Swallowtail butterflies are loving our zinnias this summer. The butterflies are either black and blue or yellow and black. The yellow version is Selma's official butterfly.
What other critters have been especially photographed today?

Some great macro shots here!

Great work on your blog today and a very appropriate picture.

I've just racked up two years at South Shields Daily Photo and I hope to be passing here in two years time to compliment you again! Keep up the good work!
Thanks to everyone who has passed by and left a comment or some encouragement, it makes it all worthwhile.

We have not very many colorful, big butterflies and in this rainy, chilly summer I have seen any of them!
