Swallowtails - Giant & Tiger

During my absence from blogging, there were still occasions when I was able to take the camera into the back yard, or round about our locale.

In early August, Giant Swallowtails again came to our butterfly garden for feeding. This is the third year running that they have been in the garden. The large size brings immediate attention to their presence. They are a "new" species to Vermont,. The photos were taken August 6.

Tiger Swallowtails love the cone flowers and lillies and are common visitors. Photos taken July 29.

And just for a chance of pace, an Atlantis Fritillary, probably the most common butterfly in the garden this summer.

Hope you are enjoying the end of summer!
