It flew duty bound
As I knelt on the ground
To follow with my eyes
Giant Swallowtail Butterflies
Pollinating the flowers
Captured last day of July
Generating their powers
Flapping wings in the sky.

Really got my practice in today...Caught only one on this shot but it joined another giant swallowtail every once in awhile as they flitted around the butterfly bush while I knelt underneath trying to track them down with my camera.

Best View in light box! Thank you!!!
