Fragility

Tiger swallowtail. Fragile butterfly's wings, clipped yet flying free.

What a beauty Lulu, butterfly wings always fascinate me, the intricate patterns are amazing..but as you say, so fragile, I wonder what happened to this poor fellow, thankfully not enough damage to stop it flying.

Chrissy - thanks so much!

Mo - So cool, it wasn't as easy to spot them in London as I'd thought.

PerthDailyPhoto - Thanks! I also find butterfly wings very fascinating - wish I knew the story behind this poor fellow's wings too.

LOLfromPasa - thank you! :)

Beautiful. Its been a long time since I saw a swallowtail here in England perhaps 20 years or more.
