Let me know which is your favorite and why.
Pens: Masterpiece is an easy theme to interpret. It conjures the classic and unconventional. It symbolizes the sublime and visibly noticed and unforgotten. While a great monument or novel or painting or sculpture can comply, I have selected the native swallowtail butterfly as my entry.
While foraging in my garden during late afternoons, I’ve noticed this season’s abundance of the Eastern Tiger Swallowtail (Papilio glaucus). As these gorgeous creatures feast throughout my gardens, they can be great models or slippery spectacles. It takes just a small movement to dislodge their concentration.
In the Lens section is a set of images of a male Eastern Tiger Swallowtail dining on various coneflowers. For additional information about these masterpieces of nature, click here.
Note: As always I welcome any comment about this post or any part of my blog.
