2014 Photo Journal - Day 83 - Baby Swallowtail

We were working in the garden today, and we found a shiny blue beetle - but low and behold it was really a swallowtail butterfly just out of its chrysalis - the first I have ever seen!!! I put it in a jar to take a photo, but it changed into a butterfly in just a few minutes!!! This photo was taken after I had turned it loose. The photo below is one taken to show the size. Isn't  nature grand?!!!


  1. Indeed it is! Beautiful spring picture!

  2. How awesome! Great spotting - it's so small!!
