This is the second year in a row I’ve made a photograph of an Eastern Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly with tattered wings on August 5th. There was no plan or intention. It was simply the coincidence of us both being ragged from July in North Carolina. In my case, I needed relief from air conditioned cabin fever. My shutter speed was too slow for the light breeze and it was entirely my fault. Too much time indoors.
