Three shots of Papilio Bairdii (San Bernardino mts.), and a Papilio Indra Pergamus
These are Parnassius claudius ssp. from the Sierras. From left to right
- A male, female, and then two shots of the female from below. Note the
strange "growth" on end of her abdomen. The male actually "builds" this
protective shield during/after mating to prevent other males from
attempting to mate with her again later.
A trio of butterflies (Southern Dogface, Behr's Sulphur, and dainty Sulphur), A
group of Falcate orange tips (Southeastern US), and a beautiful hi-res image of
an ex-pupae Cecropia moth.
A couple of shots of specimens collected in the 2005 season.
