An Eastern Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly flutters over a milk thistle during a bright sunny day.


Caesar Creek Wildlife Area - Waynesville, Ohio, USA

Out of roughly 700 images of butterflies in flight, I caught this one! Photographing the Eastern Tiger Swallowtail on the move was much more difficult than I imagined with the unpredictable breeze. I laid on the wetland ground and waited for them to pass over me. Luckily, this one wasn't as shy!
