I was out in my sanctuary (more about that later), waiting for a hummer friend to show. Looking up through the lilacs for birds, I spotted this jewelled creature. I love butterflies but seldom see them in my yard.
The first couple of shots were on settings for the undergrowth, so I had too much exposure. But move fast, fast, Lilly! And I did. So I got a couple with better light.
Now I look up all the time I’m out, hoping for Yellow Swallowtails to come back. So pretty!
