This is my very first photograph of a butterfly, and I'm super stoked about it. I took 8 or 9 photos of this fluttering black and yellow Canadian or Western Tiger Swallowtail butterfly as it went from blackberry blossom to blackberry blossom along the roadside across from our home.
I'm not much of a butterfly watcher, or "into" insects and creepy crawlies that inflict any kind of damage on my garden vegetables, but I do have to admit they are quite pretty. I made a few products with the photo late last night and I misindentified it as a monarch, silly me. A quick search tells me that it most certainly isn't a monarch. Sigh. I'll go back through them all and relabel them.
