The Delaware Raritan canal lies less than 2 miles from our house. I went there today to see whether there were butterflies and dragonflies to photograph, and found four different kinds. I am no expert on these insects, so please correct me if I get their names wrong.

Black Swallotail: this one was actually dark brown.

This next one, American Lady, landed on the gravel path right in front of me and flapped her wings until I got several shots of her.
