Yellow Swallowtail on Lantana
September 23, 2007
The Lantana blooms must have been sweet - you could see the long proboscis probing eagarly in the blooms.
After the great blessing of watching a black swallowtail on the Lantana bush a week or so ago, this morning there was a very cooperative yellow swallowtail who tolerated my presence.
An added bonus was the appearance of what I found out to be a hummingbird hawkmoth. Maybe I had seen one before, but not this close up.
