We have had some very hot weather here lately. Monday through Wednesday were awful. High temperatures were near 100 degrees F. When I took my camera outside to take pictures the lens would fog over.
Finally on Thursday we got a break–the high was 90. While it was still hot and steamy it felt a lot cooler. I went to the flower garden. Conditions were near perfect for butterflies, and I saw this eastern tiger swallowtail. I almost got the picture I wanted.
