Pipevine Swallowtail

We were at Tilden Botanic Garden recently for a haiku walk. Linda P.
told me that that was a special butterfly and to watch. So I did.
One side of the wings is an iridescent blue, that only shows when the wings are unfolded.
One cannot really see it in this photograph, which is the best one I took.
It is called a Pipevine Swallowtail, because it likes the Pipevine plant.

folding, unfolding
heedless of its beauty--
pipevine swallowtail
June Hopper Hymas

And this was my favorite haiku from that ginko!
