Tiger swallowtails flutter more than perch when they’re feeding.

I decided to go for pictures with movement for a change.

They did land on the phlox flowers and flutter to hold their position.

They “fluttered” out of sight on many pictures.

  2. Beautiful shots of this gorgeous butterfly. I chased one around yesterday, the only one that i say in a large garden that I hoped would be full of butterflies. I don’t know if the polar vortex was the reason, but haven’t seen many large butterflies here in Northern Virginia.

  4. I think we learn more when we experiment. I had to laugh at the shot with no butterfly. I took a few shots of dragonflies on a bush yesterday and when I looked at them there was plenty of bush but no dragonflies.
