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.”

“Every man’s foremost task
is the actualization of his unique, 

unprecedented and never-recurring potentialities,
and not the repetition of something that another, 
and be it even the greatest, has already achieved.”

― Martin Buber

As far nature,

it is not what it is

that interests me,

but what it becomes.
