Thanks! It was pretty difficult to get the thing in focus. That day was rather windy, so the flower was blowing around with the butterfly on top of it x.x

I like butterfly closeups, I can see the veins on the wings and everything. I can even see the stippling pattern on parts of the wing

So pretty! What a gorgeous butterfly...I didn't know swallowtails had those little bits of light blue on their wings.

There's so many different kinds of swallowtails. I tend to get some of them in our area mixed up. I had to consult the internets to positively ID this one X3

The internet is awesome.

I used Google to ID a spider once. Good thing too, as it turned out to be a brown recluse. o_o;
