Beautifull close-up of a battered beauty!
Looks like he/she got a right good bum-biting I reckon Mike
Thank you for your kind words and have a happy Sunday!
Even though a bit ragged, it still looks lovely!
Thank you kindly Nik I figure that they's all but just about done now anyway for this year. Maybe this is how it ends for them!
This young lady had the remains of Tiger Swallowtail in her web when she was posing for us.
Its all quite sad really - but then we are a load of softies!
Best wishes from North Carolina
Well maybe she gave up her beautiful tail to escape from the spider....and the story has a happy ending:)
Great shot however the story goes!
I like your story though Joy I am a huge softy at heart!
Thank you for your kind words.
Lovely picture of this Swallowtail, Jethro! It has obviously seen better days but still looks beautiful on that yellow flower and I like it a lot! Greetings, Anne
He/she is drinking deep from the flower Anne
