|My photos of the pipevine swallowtail (Battus philenor) are not as clear as I would prefer, but they happen to be the only ones I've ever taken of the pipevine.|
|This pipevine was probably an older one, since the iridescent blue had mostly faded. All the same, there was enough there to allow a positive identification.|
|The pipevine swallowtail was very restless, continually frittering about from one flower to another, allowing me to have a flight photo.|
I was grateful whenever it stopped flying long enough for me to attempt to focus and capture a few photos.
Photo note: I used the Pentax K3, with the SMC-A* 200mm macro lens, on Sept. 25, 2017, at the Snetsinger butterfly garden.
