Spicebush Swallowtail May was... a time to reflect. On Memorial Day we honor, recognize, and thank those who have fought for our freedom. It was also Mother's Day and time to honor our Moms who have taken care and taught us great lessons and this month was a time to spend with family and unplug from the blog a bit.
Being outdoors when the rain and cool temps allowed now has given way to warmer sunnier days and the chance to clear Winter and allow for the new growth to expand.
This image is a Spicebush Swallowtail was photographed enjoying a stop at the butterfly bush. It has been shared almost four thousand times and one of my most popular images. I am humbled.
So, looking forward to what Summer brings on this last day of May.
