Black Swallowtail

As I pulled in the driveway after work today, a black swallowtail butterfly was sippin' pollen from the Plumbago bushes out front. I didn't have my camera, but I just had to write about it after all the caterpillars I blogged about back in the spring. I hope they lay some more eggs and continue the miraculous life cycle of caterpillars, cocoons, butterflies, etc. What a wondrous thing to observe!
