At the end of July, on an uncommonly hot day, this Spicebush Swallowtail butterfly (Papilio troilus) briefly visited a Tiger Lily (Lilium tigrinum). The swallowtails are unique in that even while feeding, they continue to flutter their wings.
Great shot! One day I will see an opportunity such as this; actually have the camera with me; the wildlife will hold still for a few moments; and, maybe . . . . Like I said, great shot; Favorite10. Mark
