Yellow Swallowtail on Lantana

September 23, 2007

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.

The Lantana blooms must have been sweet - you could see the long proboscis probing eagarly in the blooms.

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.
