Tiger Swallowtail and spider

Posted in Animals, Hill Country on April 16th, 2012 by judy

Today’s picture isn’t going to win any prizes — neither for the photographer nor for the butterfly — but it tells a story. Many butterflies if you see them close up have damage to their wings. This one is about as ratty as I’ve seen. This makes us think about what a time the migrating butterflies have on their long trips. I couldn’t find out if the Tiger Swallowtail does migrate, but this one has been through something. The little green spider was able to make the butterfly fly by lunging toward it, but the butterfly just came back to the same flower to feed. Wimberley, Texas

Butterfly migration is one of the joys of the Hill Country in the fall. This photograph captures the beauty of the Monarch Butterfly dining on the nectar of Blue Mist, pausing in the Hill Country for rest and rejuvenation on its way to Mexico.
