Black Swallowtail!

Oh, but for the butterflies that flitter around those gorgeous blooms that brighten our lives and bring smiles to our faces. This Black Swallowtail was doing just that when I captured this image recently while walking the Sun and Shade Trail at Bernheim. Hope your weekend isn't too hot and sticky. ENJOY!

    Hey Carol,

    Great work with the swallow tail. They really are beautiful butterflies. I love your isolation of the subject blowing out the background and the colors really pop plus your subject is crisp and track sharp to help aid the viewers eye to the subject. Awesome. You have a great weekend too!

  2. ...gorgeous capture, Carol. I think it's hard to photograph the black wings in sunlight. You did a great job! The blue looks fantastic...

    I agree! A perfect pose, and lighting.
