The warm spring afternoon brings out the butterflies. An Anise Swallowtail (Papilio-- "butterfly" zelicaon--a name from The Iliad) spent a while nectaring on my lilacs. It visited each lilac blossom bundle, shivering its wings as it sucked lilac juice. I teetered on tiptoe on my chopping stump and took LOTS of pix, these two were my favorites. Anise Swallowtails like the tops of hills and ridges for breeding, and will stake out a territory and defend it, king of the mountain style. As I watched this swallowtail, two Spring Azures spiraled by overhead, and an orange Fritillary looped along the ground.
