State Butterfly of North Carolina
A friend of mine from our local camera club took a short outing to a unique place the other day - along Interstate 26 West near Arden, NC. There was a large patch of sunflowers along the highway. After parking safely at a nearby rest area, we backtracked to the flowers. Being surrounded these beautiful tall flowers is quite something and I'm 6'1". Bees were everywhere doing their thing. After taking numerous photos I was on my last flower and fortune showed on me. Out of nowhere this Eastern Tiger Swallowtail, our state butterfly, landed right in front of us. It was there only momentarily so I was fortunate to get this photograph. The flowers were already starting to fade so I'll be sure to remember it. If you live nearby, I'd recommend marking your calendar for next late July.

State Butterfly of North Carolina The tiger swallowtail is the state butterfly of North Carolina.Photography is the art, science, and practice of creating pictures by recording radiation on a radiation-sensitive medium, such as a photographic film, or an electronic image sensor. Photography uses lenses to focus the light reflected or emitted from objects into a real image on the light-sensitive surface inside a camera during a timed exposure. With an electronic image sensor, this produces an electrical charge at each pixel, which is electronically processed and stored in a digital image file for subsequent display or processing. The result with photographic emulsion is an invisible latent image, which is later chemically developed into a visible image, either negative or positive depending on the purpose of the photographic material and the method of processing. A negative image on film is traditionally used to photographically create a positive image on a paper base, known as a print, either by using an enlarger or by contact printing.
