Emerging Butterfly

A few weeks ago we noticed a tiger swallowtail butterfly that had just emerged from its cocoon and was drying its wings.

The years I’ve spent planting flowers and shrubs that are attractive to butterflies have paid off. Many various butterflies have stopped by to sample the nectar this summer. This one, however, in his or her stage of hatching and drying, was still long enough to have its picture taken.
