Sunday 21 August 2011: Pipevine Swallowtail
Back in May I was fortunate enough to visit a local project devoted to the restoration of this creature and its habitat, Aristolochia. Today I got to go back and see one of the newly emerged butterflies. Like all of us here these days, he was waiting for the sun, which made him a patient unmoving model. I was intrigued by my host's camera gear, particularly the various flash units, which are now on my covet list.
You can see the caterpillar here.
And read about the project here.
