This black swallowtail butterfly posed for a good while for me this morning. He was so still that I was able to get some good detail. Lookout Mountain, TN

    Wonderful detail!! What an excellent capture, Don! My butterflies here are camera shy lately. BTW this looks like a female giant swallowtail.
