poor butterfly--it is a beautiful specimen. The flowers are gorgeous.
I wonder if he/she is just old or what. Sure is pretty however. And those wild flowers are gorgeous. Great captures :)
torn and tettered but extremely beautiful! another great image from you! :)
Wow what a great looking butterfly!
Battered, but still flying! Just like life...
Awww! the poor thing has a torn wing.. I hope he can still fly high..http://www.abc1on1.com/2010/09/camera-critters-127-weird-insect.html
Remarkable. You must have the patience of Job to get such spectacular shots. I can never seem to be still so they'll land.
Gorgeous shot! That field must have had lots of butterflies all the time.
Butterflies have such fragile, short lives - but this is beautiful. The depth of colour in those flowers is wonderful.
Carletta, both of these are just plain lovely!
Butterflies are so beautiful and their wings are so delicate. Lovely photo.
Torn and tattered but still beautiful.
Wow, she stretched her wings for you to capture, thanks for the visit Carletta.
Tattered, but still beautiful!I have some pics of the very same kind of butterfly that I found-apparently almost at the end of it's life cycle...It was on the ground ,unable to fly. But it was still beautiful.(made me feel sad- but that's life)Hugs))Junie
I love the way you not only captured the butterfly feeding but also the field of those beautiful purple flowers.
Great capture. The butterfly still looks majestic although it's wings are slightly damaged.
Another winning shot Carletta!
Wonderful shot of the swallowtail!
Oh I love the purple flowers, favorite colour!! I have the elusive butterfly in my post as well!Great photo captures!!
Beautiful, even having its wings a little damaged.
Has there been a storm, and the poor wing got battered?
Great captures! Oh, my.. I wonder what happen to that butterfly but he still beautiful.
These are great, and so's the one below!
Poor thing and probably still has a ways to go on his migration - superb capture Carletta
In a beautiful way. He looks amazing for being torn and tattered. Beautiful shot.
Beautiful Carletta -- maybe torn and tattered but still hanging in there and looking great (might be a moral in there somewhere!)
Lovely butterfly. What is it? It looks like a Papilio machaon. Many lovely photos in here. Have a nice day.
I was looking at the post above and noticed the title of this post...don't know why I didn't notice the 'iron' part of it...I would have left the comment:In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida, Baby!
I love the purple field, and the butterfly is beautiful!
