This pretty, yellow and black Western Tiger Swallowtail was feeding on the Catmint wildflowers in my yard. It’s the first one that I’ve seen this summer.
Beautiful butterfly, don’t you think? Love the orange and blue spots on its tail!
I was at Lily Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park the other day waiting for a beautiful Red Admiral butterfly to open its wings so I could get a good photograph of it. When, along flew this gorgeous black and white Weidemeyer’s Admiral butterfly and landed on the rock right next to it. How lucky is that?
This Weidemeyer’s Admiral butterfly was very accommodating with his wings open the entire time.
Gorgeous, isn’t it? Can you see the little red spots near the bottom edge?
