06July05 Pipe Vine Swallowtail


Photo a Day, Day 99...This Swallowtail somehow got itself caught in the deer netting we put around the garden to keep the deer out. He stayed perfectly still for this first shot and then took up the quest of trying to get out. He quickly flew off once I made a way out for him..

So glad to hear it had a happy ending, but what a great photo in the wire fence! :)

I'll trade you a Tiger Swalllotail for this Pipe Vine : )
Nice find and what an opportunity, but it must have been
hard getting the focus right because of the netting.
