I have many fond childhood memories of capturing Tiger Swallowtails in bug catchers to admire them, then let them go. As a child, I was really big into collecting insects. However, we also tried to let many go before they expired. It was never my goal to kill them, that I remember. But I used to see these yellow creatures fluttering around all the bushes outside our apartment. Nowadays, I rarely see them. I saw a few in one day while out testing a new camera, and got this perfectly timed shot of the butterfly feeding. There's no lens EXIF data, because I shoot through an adapter with Canon lenses.
