|nectaring on Queen Anne's Lace|
I'm not certain if this is a pipevine or black swallowtail. From reading the description in my butterfly field guide I'm led to believe it's the pipevine. When I look online at images it's matching the black. Can anyone tell me which butterfly this is? Isn't it gorgeous. I'm surprised the photo turned out as well as it did because the wind was blowing hard yesterday.
I also stole shots of a squirrel across the road from our house. He was having fun scurrying across those branches like a gymnast on a balance beam. Such precision. I guess they have to perfect their balance because one misstep could lead to a crash. I'll share him with you tomorrow.
