Lovely photos.
My Mexican Petunias are blooming their little hearts outs.
Have a great week!

Sparky your photos are great! What kind of camera do you have? I love the shots of the butterfly. Of course, your baby's eyes melt my heart. I've grown quite attached to my grand dogs.

All right. I have to ask: How did you know the Tiger Swallowtail is a male? I enlarged the photo and looked very carefully, but can't see it.

God bless.

@Jackie ~ Mine took "forever" to bloom but it's because the (now former) Oak tree was shading that part of the house. Silly things like sunshine. Who knew?! *grin*
@Vintage ~ Olympus 501. It's my "good camera".
@Victor ~ It took me a good 10 minutes to stop laughing to respond. I really like your sense of humour. *giggle* Anyway, the female has multiple blue patches on the hind wings, the male hind wings are mostly black and yellow. That pearl of wisdom is compliments of my husband. I call him the walking encyclopedia he's so knowledgeable. (Kinda cute too ...)
God bless. ~:)

Your butterfly photo is pretty. My camera is hard to use to take photos of fluttering things like birds and butterflies.

Wow! That is some beautiful variety! But I still think Jackie Boy wins the cute award.
