Last August, I came home from a long safari in the dry canyon and was looking forward to a cold drink and hot shower. As I unlocked the door to my place, a voice in my head yelled, "Look!" I swiveled my head from side-to-side, wondering where the voice came from.
Then I heard the voice again. "To your right, look" This time I backed up and looked to my right. There, 30 feet away in flowers of a hanging plant was a large, fluttering white object. I switched my camera back on and walked over to the object.
It was an Oregon Old World Swallowtail, also known scientifically as, Papilio machaon oregonius. It was the first I had seen in such a way I could photograph it. And even though its wings were a bit worn, it was still a beautiful critter to shoot.
I hope you agree.
