Swallowtails

The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough. ~Rabindranath Tagore
 Beautiful and graceful, varied and enchanting, small but approachable, butterflies lead you to the sunny side of life. And everyone deserves a little sunshine. ~Jeffrey Glassberg
Swallowtails and Giant Swallowtails are numerous around our yard and this is only one of many.

May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun
And find your shoulder to light on,
To bring you luck, happiness and riches
Today, tomorrow and beyond.
~Irish Blessing

These swallow tails are beautiful. Hard to believe that something so beautiful can come from something so ugly. (cocoon)
You must live in just the right place to attract so many butterflies, and of course you must have all the right things growing in your yard to attract them.

Your butterflies are so pretty. Isn't it funny - if someone helps them out of the cacoon - they die - they have to struggle to stay alive and turn beautiful.
