Butterflies butterflies

This afternoon, I managed to photograph a beautiful, beautiful giant swallowtail (Papilio cresphontes). At least, that's what I'm assuming it is, after studying our Kaufman Field Guide to Butterflies of North America. It was sipping on our Salvia coccinea and lantana.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, dozens of queens (Danaus gilippus) visit our blue mistflowers daily. They're just all so beautiful.

Hark, oh, my! This evening, I believe I shot a MONARCH (Danaus plexippus) on the butterfly bush!!
