A Giant Swallowtail has been visiting our zinnias for a while, but they are so "fluttery" that they are hard to photograph. My patient husband with a quick finger on the camera button got this photo this morning:
Finally got the chance to take a pic, only because these two were staying in the same general area for so long, so I had time (with much time to spare) to go get my camera.I mostly get monarch butterflies in my yard...A LOT!
However, I've been putting in more and more variety of plants to attract other species and have noticed an increase this year in the giant swallowtails and others. BTW, they seem to really like the Mexican sunflower plant.
And now I'm noticing humming birds starting to show up, but I've yet to be able to get a pic, for the same reason -- they never seem to stop moving.
Now when I take my camera outside I put in on max shutter speed.
