Saturday 13 August 2011: From the underside
When I came home from work today, I noticed that the butterfly bush had about 5 or 6 butterflies on it. Unfortunately, I don't have my telephoto lens back from being repaired yet (don't get me going on THAT subject....!)
The only butterfly that was willing to stick around with me, literally standing in the middle of the bush, was this swallowtail. He (or she) didn't seem to care that I was taking a few pictures, the rest flew away.
I hope you are enjoying your weekend!!
