Some Of My Flowers Fly

This beautiful Two-tailed Swallowtail showed up in my backyard yesterday.  It seemed to really enjoy my Bougainvillea.  It made me think of a flower in flight. 





This reminds me of a heart...

I love this view.



Their markings are just amazing...I so enjoyed our little visit.

These are just stunning pictures, I love the colors!!! So bright, sharp, and clear, too! You were lucky to find this one. Most of them here seem to be missing at least part of a tail!

Oh my stars in heaven, look at these photos. Such detail on the butterfly to where it looks 3D. Not a blemish on the butterfly, I wonder if its a youngster. The tail area is so perfect.
