“Pale Swallowtail”

Pale SwallowtailCold nights and stormy weather–is there a better time to think about more pleasant things? Here is a picture I took about a year and a half ago of a Pale Swallowtail. It reminds me of warm summer days, flower gardens and all of the wildlife that goes along with it. Butterflies seem to lead an idyllic life. They flit here and there from flower to flower searching for food and nutrients. They also search for mates. Their short life-span as adults dictates early procreation. While some species hibernate through the winter and mate in the spring, others die when cold weather sets in. Whatever their schedule, whatever their purpose, butterflies make excellent subjects for photography.
