“Old World Swallowtail”

© 2015 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott

While in Arizona we took our kids to the Butterfly Wonderland, which has the largest butterfly atrium in America. I had a chance to capture a number of beautiful images of many species of butterfly there. This was one, an Old World Swallowtail (Papilio Machaon) that I really enjoyed. I took the color tones cooler to help create an atmosphere where the swallowtail’s colors could really shine.
