While most of my frames are pretty dark, I do like to use lighter themes with certain insects. This Tiger Swallowtail (Papilio glaucus) is one of my most recent frames that I have finished up. I'm hoping to have some more up before Halloween!!

The purpose of the life of every Butterfly is to set everything that was once known aside and to embrace an entire new way of being. With Butterfly symbolism we are shown that we can reshape and re-sculpt ourselves in mind, body and spirit... this is the elegant example of what we are capable of.. #spreadyourwingsandfly#somatichealings#mothernature#tigerswallowtail
After taking photos, this Swallowtail perched on my hand while I worked on the computer.
I wondered what was going through it’s little mind. Did it recognize itself, or was it in awe of the largest butterfly it had ever seen? For reasons unknowable to us both, this Robert Burns quote came to mind. “O, wad some Power the giftie gie us
To see oursels as others see us!
It wad frae monie a blunder free us,
An' foolish notion.” If the Swallowtail spoke Scottish Gaelic (makes as much sense as him speaking English), he might have been thinking: Dè fo shealbh?
Things are All Aflutter at Anita as we prepare an upcoming spring 2018 collection of over 30 realistic butterflies and moths. We are so excited about this collection that we had to share some designs with you a little early! Starting September 6, these realistic beauties will be available for a limited time only through our online store. Each of these amazingly detailed lepidoptera designs will be released as a digital download for one day, so act fast before they dart away!
Today we feature one of America’s sweethearts, the Tiger Swallowtail! This design will only be available for purchase until noon EST on Friday, September 15th.
