The north side of our front yard is a certified National Wildlife Federation Backyard Habitat. Really! We have a certificate! You can do the same by providing food, water, cover and places for wildlife to raise their young. It is so much fun to see all of the critters that stop by for a visit. I have a series of posts to show you our Garden Guests. If you would like to see more posts like this one, please hop over to my Garden Page.
When these shots were being snapped, the creamy color made me think this beauty was a Zebra Swallowtail.
During editing though, I think the gorgeous butterfly is a tired Tiger Swallowtail. Notice how ragged the wing edges are. (Please feel free to correct me as I don't always get the ID quite right! These photos were taken in October.)
It was moving very slowing along the grass, but never held still.
