Yellow and Black Tiger Stripe Swallowtail Butterfly

Just enjoy the magical construction of nature... nothing I can say about the swallowtail could be more interesting then it's patterns...

Thanks Liberty and Canary!!!

Usually these guys are hard to get a picture of, but it was actually dieing, which is why it allowed me to touch it. Interestingly it has taken it 3 days to die completely, and i kept it near me the entire time, watching it, checking on it- every piece of life deserves to have it's death calmly. I talked sweet to it too :)
