📷 Mating Butterflies

in photography •  3 months ago

These butterflies are mating on cabbage, their favourite stuff.

This species is quite discrete about it:

I also found the last one of the big caterpillars of the swallowtail. There were seven here before; I hope the rest hid to pupate, but I am afraid the birds ate them:

Looks like it!

WOW! those butterflies are BEAUTIFUL! ❤
Very clear shot though and wonderful colours!

·

Thanks!

They only sit still when they eat or mate, so ...

Cabbage, never trust a cabbage muncher.

·

You may have a point there.

The caterpillar is on fennel, any thoughts on that?

·
·

Fennel is perfectly acceptable. The caterpillar gets a pass

You must work in the botanical garden.

I wish.

Great shots, that caterpillar is awesome.
