Palamedes Swallowtail Butterfly

With all the thistle that is blooming and adding some pretty pink color just before the Fall season, more swallowtails are gathering. For some reason, I think the thistles are blooming really late this year. This is the perfect opportunity to take some amazing close-ups of these butterflies because they are so preoccupied gathering nectar. Just be careful of those thorns!
