Lake Louisa SP, orlando, FL

Name to be added when I get home ;0))

What do you do when you go out to go birding and can only find
two birds, shoot butterflies ;o) Seriously the Orlando area is suffering
an unusual drought and many places are obviously drying out. This shot was
from the Lake louisa area and the ranger there siad the lke was down several
feet. The cypress swamp was barely even muddy.

According to my butterfly book this is a Palamedes Swallowtail. Beautifully captured color and composition. Voted.
