We have some lovely, friendly visitors to our yard. Now, we're not "lucky" that we get some of these beauties, we have specifically planted the right plants to attract them :o)
This is a beautiful specimen of a female Tiger Swallowtail.
She hung around this Echinacea for quite a while, I was happy to be able to run back in and grab the camera and get photos. I also got some video footage I will have fun editing later.
