Black Swallowtail Butterflies have coloration and markings that mimic the poisonous Pipevine Swallowtail. For this reason, many predators avoid eating the Black Swallowtails. Most of these butterfly photos were taken in my own garden around my house in Michigan.

These close-up butterfly photos were taken with either a Canon EOS60D with a Sigma 105mm macro lens, sometimes with extension tubes. The Sigma lens, when mounted on the Canon SLRs yields an operational focal length of about 170mm, giving the photographer the opportunity to obtain macro images of subjects from greater distances. Larger versions of these butterfly photos can be viewed by using a mouse rollover or by using the Slideshow below. For an introduction to close-up photography, please see my site on Macro Photography.
