I was out cutting roses (again) for the petals for Kaitlyn’s wedding. As I was cutting, I happened to catch motion from the corner of my eye and there was a lovely butterfly. I calmly and carefully pulled my phone from my pocket.
The butterfly kindly stayed around long enough for me to take a few photographs. It was a rather large one too. I’m guessing that it was the size of my palm.
I love butterflies. I think this one is an Old World Swallowtail, but I’m not really sure.
