I am hunting, with my camera...

this Giant Swallowtail. One would think this huge butterfly is slow enough so one can follow, but not so! 
It sails through the air, quickly around the shrubs, up into the sky, diving ,gliding, avoiding me ...

I am chasing it all around the back yard, never able to get close enough. I must have taken 50 shots by now ... until it discovers the golden glowing Lantana. 

Finally, I am admiring this Beauty close up forgetting to snap pictures
