Flying Jewel

Flying Jewel, originally uploaded by Ontario Wanderer.

The first Giant Swallowtail (Papilio cresphontes) of the season showed up today along with the first Monarch and the first day of temperatures above 32 C (90 F). I enjoyed the butterflies but not the temperature.

The butterfly moved from some Rue plants, where it had landed, up to a Honeysuckle bush and then posed for about 5 minutes without moving giving me a chance to go back into the house and get my camera.
