Giant Swallowtail Butterfly on Annual Vinca
Two Giant Swallowtail butterflies (Papilio cresphontes) were fluttering about the Annual Vinca (Catharanthus roseus). I managed to photograph this one while it constantly fluttered its wings. These are big butterflies. The flower it is on is Catharanthus roseus 'Titan Dark Red'. Other Catharanthus roseus cultivars on display in this flower bed are 'Titan Apricot', 'Titan Icy Pink' and 'Cora Apricot'. Picture taken September 8, 2010.
