Flying Tiger

I took these pictures on Saturday before some annoying rain moved into the area.

In the picture above you can see the Monarch from the side. I usually don't see how vividly the body is striped so I was glad to have captured this picture with a pretty sharp focus. Taking pics of butterflies, especially in a breeze, is really hit or miss.

The picture below is a more typical shot showing the butterfly from the top angle looking down on its wings.

These are the same butterflies that visit the lilac in May... soon. I believe this is the Eastern Tiger Swallowtail (Papilio glaucus).
