Great colors throughout. Nice work Todd. Appears to be a Western Tiger Swallowtail.

Very nice shot. I find butterflies a bit uncooperative.

Thanks PJ1! It was pretty interesting. I was watching them out of my office window where this one was photographed, and it kept coming back to the same flowers. I went out with my camera, and sure enough it came right back to the spot where I was waiting.
