I was in Hot Springs, Virginia this past weekend and I found this butterfly lingering among these flowers for several minutes. I could not believe my luck! I could take pictures at all sorts of angles! It is called a Pipevine Swallowtail, commonly found in the mountains of Virginia.
I saw many other butterflies but none cooperated like this one!
