Camera Critters #168

When I was back east, I was looking forward to imaging new critters.  I have shown some of them here in the past couple of weeks, so here's another.

I was walking along the road in front of my mother's place when an Eastern Tiger Swallowtail fluttered by and landed near a trashed soda can.  It spent a few minutes there, with me waiting for it to move off so I could get a more natural photo.

But before it flew off, never to be seen again, I did manage to get a few shots.  This is the best.
