The last shall be first and the first last for many be called, but few chosen....St Matthew 20: 16
A giant Swallowtail today
Picked a flower in decay
Knowing that one needed care
For it had seen a bit of wear....
Tho' it stood above the rest,
Of Marigolds who were stronger,
The chosen flower was blest
To live the good life longer..
Poetry by me, AJP
Happy birthday, Richard....We haven't seen an over abundance of butterflies this summer and was delighted to see a giant swallowtail appear this afternoon!
All I had on my camera at the time was an 18-105 mm lens, but it worked fine for this picture showing the "Torch Tithonia" flower in focus standing above the rest..
