A butterfly lands on a Lantana blossom, and shows off its beautiful wings. This is a Spicebush Swallowtail (Papilio troilus) and was photographed along with several other species near our contributor’s home. “I took over 200 photos of all of them and probably 50 turned out,” she writes. “I was too excited to hold the camera still!”
