Whimsical Butterflies

I am absolutely fascinated with butterflies.  They dart through the sky in hazardous fashion before landing on a plant for a rest.

I came across these eastern tiger swallowtails while walking to my bus yesterday afternoon.  Despite the overcast day, anytime I tried to approach close enough for a shot, they darted away.

This is my favorite action shot...I claim that the butterfly was just camera shy!

Finally, it settled down long enough for me to get a few good shots...
