Eastern Black Swallowtail
I'm going to call these Eastern Black Swallowtail butterflies, although I'm not sure that's what they were. I took the pic last year and came across it again today. The zebra swallowtails are out now and I want to capture them on film. I was amazed at how these eastern blacks flew in sync.
Rabbits cookin' coffee -- that's what the locals call it. But here in this little hollow in East Tennessee, when the hills surrender their misty hostage to reveal the stalwart cedars growing by the stream in our pasture, I know there is no place on earth I would rather be. The welcome mat is out! Come and sit on the porch and chat with me awhile!
