“Bright shining as the sun”

I captured this beautiful female Spicebush Swallowtail impatiently flitting from one blossom to another.  She managed to light long enough on some for me to snap a few photos.  These pics do not do her justice – it was the wrong time of day to be able to get her in the right light, but I wanted to share these with you, because she made me smile when I saw her, and marvel in the beauty of God’s creation.  I do not believe that I have seen this exact shade of blue anywhere else.  I don’t believe that it could ever be duplicated, even in photos.  You must see it with your own eyes to get the full effect.  Keep your eyes open – perhaps you will see one for yourself someday.  Enjoy!
