caribbean queen(s)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

as fall is getting darker and colder memories like these warm my soul. almost a year ago by now, still in fond memory also for the two little queens.

(soundtrack fittingly enough; billy ocean – caribbean queen, which in europe was released as “european queen”)

butterfly

is what we call the uncontrollable instinct any photographer gets when a butterfly passes by, to grab a camera and with bent back run after the ever moving colorful little creature. this one at least had the curtesy to be still for a second! now i need a rest and some water…

i believe this a swallowtail of some sort, potentially a pipevine swallowtail, if anyone knows and can enlighten me – please do!
