Goats and A Swallowtail

The goats were really playful this morning and I thought I would get a few pictures, but they were way too interested in what I was holding…James

…and in eating my shirt. Well, my husband’s shirt- that I had tossed on to keep the mosquitoes off my arms (sorry about that).


They were clearly insulted that I was visiting without brushing them, so I abandoned the picture taking. On my way back inside, I was so excited to find this little guy!

Male Eastern Black Swallowtail (Papilio polyxenes)

He had just emerged (see his empty chrysalis behind him) and was drying his wings in the sun. I was surprised to find him so close to the ground.
