Swallowtail Butterfly Brightens a Dull Day

We’ve had a run of dull days, no sun and lots of rain. There was a gap in the storms this morning and we took the opportunity to get out even though conditions weren’t optimal. This Swallowtail Butterfly posed for some low light shots.

He very nicely turned around the flower exposing his underside to the camera.

And kept on turning for a nice side view of his proboscis at work.

The rain started again shortly after bringing an end to this meal.
