I noticed a lovely female Tiger Swallowtail flitting about in the front yard yesterday, mostly sipping from the Zinnias.
You can tell she’s a female by the broad band of blue at the base of her wings.
It didn’t surprise me in the least when, before long, a suitor showed up seeking her attention.
In between moments of nectar nipping, they would engage in a beautiful dance.
I think they make quite the couple!

Wonderful shots of the beautiful butterfly couple. I am especially in awe of the in-flight shots–I know from personal experience how hard they are to capture.
I thought birds in flight was hard enough….sheesh…these butterflies are hard to get in focus! But they are so so beautiful to watch.
It’s fun to challenge yourself as a photographer. I haven’t focused on flying butterflies but regularly try to photograph dragonflies in flight. 🙂
These are lovely photos Kathy! Thank you so much for sharing!
They certainly are the King and Queen of the prom!
Wow! In flight images! And now I know how to tell them apart! Thank you!
