It was sheer luck! I try to quietly follow the butterflies as they make their rounds. Persistence generally pays off :)

How did you get that creature to hold still long enough to snap a picture! A beautiful close-up!

I've been noticing quite a few of these lately!

Zebra Swallowtail - Eurytides marcellus. I saw one this year. It was very exciting. They normally don't make it this far north.
