Default Western Tiger Swallowtail

These butterflies are fairly uncommon in my neighborhood, and they rarely stay still in one spot. I was very lucky to find this one, while still very active, at least stayed around this one bush for quite a while for me (FZ35 + LC55)

Brilliant pictures, saly. Impressive. Fine camera + closeup lens combo. They never sit still for me, those escapists

Thanks Dave and Torgny. This was really a very rare case when this butterfly kept coming back to the same shrub I was standing by.
