Black Swallowtail Butterfly

Evidently it only takes about a week for a caterpillar to turn into a butterfly. Here it has completely emerged from it's chrysalis and is drying it's wings. If a bird hasn't grabbed it, it will probably head strait to our flowers next to the mail box.

Speaking of birds, Marcie and I had butterflies in our wedding. We thought it would make good pictures of them flying around and landing on her. It in fact did make some good pictures but in one of them, you can see some birds in the background. According to my brother, not a single butterfly made it. A bird chomped all of them as soon as they left our area. It's pretty funny to hear my brother and sister describe it.
