Today I was witness to a plot of nature: this beautiful butterfly, ID unknown, was flying through my garden, when a lizard gave it a blow, hard enough to leave it almost dead.As it could no longer fly, I put it gently on a flower and used it to photograph. I was said, but at least I managed to immortalize it in this photo which I offer to my friend Silvio who has encouraged me to post my butterflies on this site even knowing that my photos do not have the comparable quality to so many colleagues here in TN.
I take this opportunity to thank to all my dear friends who are always visiting my gallery and commenting with sympathy and encouragement, especially my dear friends George and Laszlo.
Your sincerely,
aNa

Update: Kindly identified by Ivan (Argus)as Giant Swallowtail, (Papilio cresphontes). Much appreciated.

PS:A very respectful correction made ​​by our dear colleague Peter Roos (batu):The King Swallowtail or Thoas Swallowtail (Papilio Thoas, not Papilio Cresphontes) is a butterfly of the family Papilionidae. It is found in the United States and Mexico ranging to the southernmost parts of South America.Many thanks !!!
