Newly emerged Citrus Swallowtail I found yesterday looking somewhat disorientated crawling around my lemon tree seedlings. I gave a little helping hand and it flew across the vegetable garden and found this nice shady patch of potatoes to dry its wings.
This morning it was still hanging around – looking for a date/mate as it turned out!
Love is … in a hurry, it turns out!
Yesterday evening I heard a tapping on the glass pane of my front door and look who was tying to gain entry!
Another Tri-Colour Tiger Moth. Here it is climbing up to my shoulder on the left sleeve of my sweatshirt, wings fluttering wildly. I held the camera in my right hand, pointed, clicked and hoped for the best.
The moth found its way to my hand and was easier to photograph against the backdrop of the window.
