zebra swallowtail

This weekend was spent camping at a one of the better close close to STL. With access to the Meremec River and a awesome cave to tour, we had all kinds of fun to be had. That being said, out fishing in the afternoon, I noticed a couple of Zebra Swallowtails flying around. I tried finding them last year but I got a late start and had no luck. So I swapped out the fishing pole for the camera and went after a different target. The Zebras were tricky as they feed in a frantic, constant movement that makes positioning tricky. i had to guess where it was going and hope that it did and in a position that was nice. I didnt get lucky much with it, but I got this one so I cant complain.
