These pictures are awesome! Were you sitting out in a chair stalking the hummingbirds again?
Love it! The one picture looks like a hummingbird plane coming in for a landing...
It does! Except it's a butterfly plane. An amazingly lucky shot, honestly. I have some skill with a camera, but I was just blazing away at a very active butterfly (black eastern swallowtail?) in hopes of getting a few good ones.
I do believe the one with the blue body is the Pipevine Swallowtail... and I am officially jealous!! Gorgeous visitors!
By Jove, I think you've got it, Jayne! It looks to be a pipevine swallowtail, possibly female, given the amount of white dots on the wings. I'm beginning to think I'm going to need a bigger lens...:-)
