Default Dainty Swallowtail (BIF)

A most extraordinary thing. Riding the euphoric wave of yesterday’s Welcome Swallow shoot, I came upon a flutter of Swallowtail Butterflies.
How coincidental that they were flying erratically around a pink bottlebrush tree in a mating ritual – catching them in flight was harder than Chinese algebra!
I was glad of the Sandisk 128GB Extreme Pro card in the slot that enabled continuous shooting at 10/fps for lots of attempts of which less than 10% were useable.
