I stopped by my parents' house today and saw a beautiful swallowtail butterfly out in the backyard fluttering around so I grabbed my camera and went out and captured a few macro shots.......here are a few:

The Tiger Swallowtail butterfly pictures turned out really nice.

Some beautiful shots. Poor fellow, looks like he's run into some hard times, especially his left wing.

Like the pink flower also. Glad you two stopped yesterday, sorry the painting job was going on.

Have to run to grocery and pick up milk and bananas.

Love you both.
