Caught these two flying around the orange tree. Not sure of the type of butterfly. They were just flying around the fruit trees following each other. They never would land so I could get a better shot. However, I am satisfied with this one.

Cool shot. When I see butterfly, I think of Bentley's mom. Any info about her? Hope she has fully recovered.

Hi bayourebel,

Wonderful and difficult to get photo of these Giant Swallowtails. The larva of these beautiful butterflies feed on citrus trees. Be sure to look for them - theylook just like bird droppings! Talk about two sides of the coin.:lol:

Fantastic shots!I've tried to get pictures of these guys in flight with no success until finally one incredibly lucky evening I spotted one sleeping on a bush in our backyard. I ran inside, grabbed my trusty FZ30 and snapped a ton of pictures before the light was gone.The challenge was rediculouslyeasy compared to your fabulous live action shots here. He never moved a muscle the whole time I was taking pictures.

Super job! I commend you. :-)

Two things,

First, thank you very much for the kind comments. They were very hard to follow. One just followed the other from tree to tree, up, down, sideways, etc.

Second, thanks for telling me the name of them, I new that they were not Monarchs, but didn't know the name. I can see why they are called Swallow Tails. See, even I am still learning.:G

Thanks

Jerry
