A Visitor

This Black Swallowtail butterfly landed right beside me as I was watering the flowers so I quickly ran for my camera as it continued to flit about the blossoms. When I came back I managed to get a quick shot just before it got into a more obscured area of my garden. They are such lovely creatures.
