Eastern Tiger Swallowtail

I've seen a number of butterflies this week and was able to get a few shots of some of the swallowtails that were at our butterfly bushes. These were taken with the Sigma 70-200 f/2.8.

I saw another up high in a mimosa tree and switched to the Bigma to take a few shots. Still had to crop pretty heavily to get these.
