If I’d only waited an hour, I wouldn’t have had to rely on the daily challenge for my photo so I decided to post a second today. Mainly because I’ve never photographed a large butterfly. I posted a photo of a small white one a while back but when I noticed this swallowtail flitting around the azaleas, I grabbed the camera and ran outside. I really like the focus and the exposure on this one but the shadows from the pergola’s cross beams resulted in part of the wing being in the shade.
Focal Length 300mm
