I remember the first time I saw a swallowtail, trying to capture the details of this large attractive butterfly as it fluttered by. That was many years ago. Since moving to southern Arizona, I have photographed many, and one of the things I have noticed is that they seem to be attracted to purple flowers.

I continue to be fascinated by this beautiful creature, often taking some my photos and turning them into art like the above image. This art was created from a photographed I took in August 0f 2012.

Vladimir Nabokov wrote in his novel, Lolita, of the “splendid, pale yellow creature with black blotches, blue crenels and a cinnabar eyespot above each chrome-filled black tail.”
