The Black Swallowtail Butterfly

Butterflies are feasting on the lantana these days!

These black swallowtails are almost as common as the yellow ones, 
and it's not too difficult to snap a photo of them in perfect pose.

fantastic pic...It's pretty hard to get such a crystal clear photo of butterflies, as they flutter too much...Nice header photo, too...

Oh, that black swallowtail is beautiful. I don't know if we have any of those around here.
