Black Swallowtail on Thistle at Bamber Lake

Black Swallowtail on Thistle
Ocean County NJ
August 2021

This photo was taken in the Bamber Lake vicinity. I find Black Swallowtails difficult to photograph because they have rarely landed on nice perches for me and they also have an incredibly fast wingbeat.
