Swallowtail butterfly on a flower of a shrub on our front patio. Captured from open window with Canon 100-400mmL lens.

that's very nice of you, Tania, many thanks. I am quite pleased at how the butterfly images turned out, as they were captured with the telephoto lens, not macro. I don't have a macro lens yet.

Alandra this is a wonderfully clear and detailed capture. Beautiful

thanks Carol for the nice comments. Must check the name of the flower/shrub also, as have forgotten. This butterfly was going crazy over it and moving from floret to floret, feeding from it.

Lovely capture of the pretty butterfly. Carol

thanks very much, Lorraine. Am hoping this visit from this butterfly signals more butterflies this summer than there have been here, the past few summers, as we've had hardly any here and I miss them fluttering about in amongst the flowers.
