Swallowtails in the Garden

Today’s post features a few of the many Swallowtail butterflies that have been busy in the Monarch butterfly garden I designed this spring at the Lake of the Ozarks:

Although this butterfly garden is new, and small, it has been very successful this first year.  With more plantings planned for fall and again next spring, this should be a “butterfly haven” soon!

Photographic Equipment Used:

  • Canon 5D Mark 3 body
  • Canon 180mm, f/3.5 macro lens
  • Bogen 3021 tripod and ballhead
  • ISO 200 and ISO 400
  • Aperture f/3.5 (all)
  • Shutter 1/500 sec. to 1/6000 sec.
