I found this pretty butterfly while walking on the "quiet path" in Stowe , Vermont. I believe its a Zebra Swallowtail. The Quiet path is just that a path that has been mowed in fields adjoining one of the many streams that weave their way through Stowe, on the path there can be nothing more than people walking , or walking their dogs. No bikes, etc..its a very peaceful place to walk.

Thanks for visting my gallery and your comments on my photos.

Hi Donna, It is a very nice photo with good focus and detail and great color saturation. But your butterfly is an Eastern Tiger Swallowtail. The Zebra Swallowtail is black with white or bluish white stripes.
THanks Ken53!!

Hello Donna,
Fine capture of a Zebra Swallowtail shown in a natural environment, which is more than a BG: it is a more significant part of the shot here. The whole butterfly is sharp and presented froma nice POV and looks great on the red clover.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Hello Donna,
Beautiful capture.I liked POV,exposure and composition a lot.

Hi Donna,
This photo has some rich color saturation and sharp detail. Butterfly and flower really standout against the rich greens. Nice shot!

bonjour donna
vous auriez peut etre pu recadrer un peu a mon avis pour avoir le papillon plus proche,et c'est un peu dommage de ne pas l'avoir un peu plus de profil mais cela reste une belle et bonne photo.
