Giant Swallowtail Butterfly on Thistle

Giant Swallowtail Butterfly on Thistle
As we walked along the wooded trail, we happened upon a small clearing where rays of sunlight illuminated a patch of thistles, and butterflies indulged in the sweet nectar of each spiky flower head. 

Photographed at Santa Ana National Refuge, Alamo, Texas, May 2015


  1. It must be fun to snap photos of these beautiful creatures.

    1. Yes, I enjoy taking photos of beautiful things I see in nature. A still shot of a butterfly brings out details I often miss with just my eye.
