Newborns

Three newborn Western Tiger Swallowtail butterflies (Papilio rutulus) paid us a visit to feed on one of our butterfly bushes and trumpet vines. Since they were newborn and hungry, they paid no attention to the pesky paparazzo, so I was able to get them from all sides — up and down, underneath, sideways, top, front, and back.

It was a toss up between the 1st and 4th shots, but the 4th is a great one for identification. They are all beautiful photos. :-)

Thanks, Annett. I think it's hard to pick a favorite. They all work together as a series.
