I’ll wrap up Birds of New England’s first unofficial Butterfly Weekend with some bonus shots of eastern tiger swallowtails. Monarchs may have been more numerous on my recent walks, but swallowtails proved to be more cooperative.
I hope you enjoyed Butterfly Weekend. Thanks for supporting Birds of New England.
Here’s the first of many butterfly photos I took this week during walks at Happy Landings in Brookfield, Connecticut. The vast meadows are home to a great number and variety of butterflies.
I’m kicking off the Birds of New England unofficial Butterfly Weekend with this shot because the butterfly’s wings are still perfectly intact. Many butterflies have wings that are damaged due to predators, weather or any other number of factors. These wings are as yet unscathed.
