Buttlerfly Flutter By

On the porch with a cup of Irish Breakfast Tea in my blue butterfly teacup,

when a flash of yellow caught my eye--a swallowtail, first of the season! Eastern Tiger Swallowtail to be more precise. There were several of them flitting about my pear tree, and I felt like a stalker as I tried to get a good photo of them.



Finally this one lighted long enough for me to snap a good shot.





And then, an even better shot. Fifty-four pictures taken to get this one--thank you to whoever invented the digital camera (and zoom!).

Dear Granny Sue,

Great butterfly photos!

I read your blog daily, enjoying your blooming spring while mine is still at the crocus and a few daffodil stage.

Hugs,
Kate

Beautiful photography! Thanks for sharing spring!

Thanks, everyone! I had so much fun taking these pictures. My husband can't see why I like to do it, and it's hard to explain. But I love taking just the right photo, although it happens rarely.

I'm at my son's house in Virginia this weekend, and they are about 2 weeks ahead of home as far as Spring.

Are butterflies great? They're like living jewels, and I'd rather have them around than a box full of jewelry

meant to add how exquisite your last picture is. It would make a wonderful computer desktop picture.
