Sunflower Kind of Day

IMG_3349.1

This summer, I was determined not to miss the vast fields of sunflowers.

Last summer, it was my intention to photograph them, but I procrastinated.

Since the flower field faces north and I don’t know why,

I couldn’t get the view I wanted without being run over by several

hundred cars zipping along at 60 mph.

How lucky was I to have this beautiful butterfly drop by

to sample his afternoon lunch.

Really nice photo! I believe that's a black swallowtail. :o) I've seen one this year, I didn't get any open-wing shots.
