life goes on
Okay, when people see this picture and ask what kind of Butterfly it is, I say it is a Tiger Swallow-tail. People think I am nuts, generally the comment is that it can not be because it is black. Good observation, however this is a female. This older Lady is in the Black form, there is a second colour format for the same species gender that resembles the adult male. This has to be the most striking butter-fly in the garden.
A sad story for me is attached to this picture. My Mom passed a way a few hours before hand. I took a walk in the garden for reflection. This butter-fly was just there. It gave me a sense of peace, I think. As it was I had the camera outside so I took the picture.
