Photo: Pretty swallowtail visits a thistle

225 of 1086

Taken in Florida's Ochlockonee State Park, we adore this shot of a palamedes swallowtail – also known as the laurel swallowtail – for its great perspective. It's not that often we get to study a butterfly from the front and it gives us great occasion to marvel at the wonder of those beautiful butterfly lines!
