Swallowtail Porn

Just go with the titles, ok? Some sharp pics from my Canon Rebel XTi. And this swallowtail was the FIRST insect I've seen on the butterfly bushes this year, and then another swallowtail came seconds later--all while two monarchs were nearby on the milkweed. Everyone was laying eggs between nectar breaks. Egg. Drink. Egg. Drink. Egg. Drink. It was about breakfast time I suppose. (Yes, I'm slowly going insane this summer with no book project to work on. Bummer. Last summer I wrote 150 pages and read dozens of books, so I get this one off.)

As always, I suggest clicking on the images to expand.
