Anise Swallowtail in the Sun

Mother Nature is my muse. She keeps me coming back, to try and capture that perfect moment of beauty of her creations in all its colours, moods, and viscerality. It isn’t a bird, but it has wings! We encountered several of these large and beautiful butterflies on our walk through the Boundary Bay Wildlife Management Area on the evening of June 21. Normally, the Anise Swallowtail never stops moving, but this one was “kind” enough to grant us an impromptu studio session for a few minutes while it fluttered and fed from the local flora.
