Pavement | Spicebush Swallowtail | New York
We most often think of butterflies like the Spicebush Swallowtail as being found on flowers.
Maybe sometimes a butterfly would be found on another plant or on the ground.
I thought it was interesting to find this Spicebush Swallowtail on the pavement.
The asphalt background is similar in color but dissimilar in texture to the Spicebush Swallowtail.
I think that makes for an interesting photo. Especially when combined with the colors on the Spicebush Swallowtail wings.
Photo details: Nikon D300S. Nikon 300mm f/4. Focal length 420mm. ISO 400. 1/500 sec. f/ 7.1.
