Black Swallowtail Butterfly

The latin term for this is “Not a monarch”

The Monarch is a super cool and pretty butterfly, but it is also so abundant that between those and the indiscernable white ones, you can get a bit desensitized.

Luckily we have things like this Black Swallowtail flying around to break that pattern and make my go “oh boy!” As I carefully stalk it with my camera.

I took this with my 150-600mm lens, shooting at 1/1000 and f6.3, with an ISO of 720.
