I was delighted to see this majestic Yellow Swallowtail butterfly fluttering amongst our butterfly plant yesterday, and ran and grabbed my camera.
I hope you will click on the pictures to see the amazing details in the vein markings of its wings.
Uh-oh ... look out! Here comes a bumblebee!
This is the first yellow swallowtail I've seen on our butterfly plant, and he (or she) seemed to love it. Hopefully, more will follow.
The word lagniappe, as defined by Webster's, means "something given or obtained gratuitously, or by way of good measure."
"Time never turns backwards
Its old charms to give,
In photographs only
Can yesterdays live."
