Rabble of Butterflies

June 11, 2013

When going out for a jog the other day, I noticed this group of tiger swallowtail butterflies along our driveway. In addition to the usual yellow and black, you can also see a couple dark morph females.

Living in Virginia, I’ve noticed some good looking license plates featuring our official state insect, the tiger swallowtail butterfly. There are some other neat plates available, including ones for Shenandoah National Park, and even my favorite steam locomotive. I would consider getting a special plate if it was a one-time fee, but apparently you have to pay extra annually.

    Greetings,
    I am a volunteer Master Gardener in New Jersey who gives gardening presentations illustrated by PowerPoint to garden clubs, libraries, and other community organizations. Master Gardeners are supported by Rutgers University, but neither I nor Rutgers receive payment for these presentations.
    Currently I am preparing a talk on Gardening for Butterflies, and I would very much like to use the slide, “Rabble of Butterflies.” I am writing to ask permission to use it. I would gladly credit Old Dominion Wildlife as well as the photographer, if you could provide his/her name.
    Thank you for considering this request, Ruth Claus
