06-13-09 Swallow Tail and Lavender

I thought I’d balance my rather somber cemetery photo from yesterday with something a little less heavy. So how about a butterfly perched on some lavender?

This photo was taken on the island of Hvar, just off the coast of Croatia. Deb pointed out the butterfly and told me it wasn’t “just” another butterfly but that it was a swallow tail. She says it was the third one she’d ever seen. I guess it’s my first one. Hvar Island, incidentally, is one of the world’s largest producers of lavender. I have seen lavender before – but not fields of it like I’ve seen here.
