Lily lunch

    Good morning.

    This is a type of swallowtail that lives in the northeastern USA. A quite amazing creature, like all swallowtails.

      It is common around here too. It is called "Macaone"(Papilio Machaon - Linnaeus 1758), but please do not ask me the ethymology of Machaon.
      By the way, it's a beautiful catch!

      "...oh be just like a butterfly
      who floats with grace and ease.
      She was just a little worm
      stuck to her life in trees.
      But a vision grew inside her
      and though her means were scarce and gone,
      that promise blossomed anyway
      and now she flutters in the sun..."
      (part of a song I wrote...)

      LOVE the picture.
      Makes me want to sing..
