This is one of my favorites. It’s wingspan can be up to 5”. This one is not quite that large.
The L “swallowtail” is missing on this one. She posed so well I took a second picture. Very distinct pattern on her wings.
I believe this is a male….see the blue ringed with orange near the tail? And it has both tails.
This one is missing the R tail. Looks like I had 3 visit the Bottlebrush Bush today.
We spent over a week on the boat. If you like gators….check out the boating blog… www.alwayslingerawhile.blogspot.com
I have video of a Gator, Manatees and Swallowtail Kites…but unable to publish them. If you go to www.youtube.com and put CmyBirds2 in the “search” it will bring up all the videos I have posted on both blogs.
If anyone one knows why the sudden problem with attaching videos to the blog..please let me know.
