Pictures from Phoenix and sometimes from the surrounding cities that make up the "Valley of the Sun"
Lovely butterfly.As I understand it when Robert McCulloch was buying London Bridge he thought he was actually buying Tower Bridge. Many still think that Tower Bridge is london Bridge.
They ARE difficult to capture, aren't they...but patience always wins out. This is a beautiful butterfly, and I'm glad that you managed to get this lovely photo. Reminds me of the series I recently published, and I need to go back to the exhibit at our Como Zoo in St. Paul.
A tiger swallowtail! It happens to be my town's official insect.
Stunning! Thx for your perseverance.
Nice capture, they are hard to catch and if your shadow falls on them they are off in a flash. This one has seen some hard times...the wings are missing some edges.
Great shot. I hope you got this in the early morning not in the 113 temp we have been having.
It looks like our Tiger Swallowtails. They are not yet out and about here. I looked in my journal last year and it was almost August before any appeared.
This is a wonderful blog I wondered what Phoenix looks like and now I know.
