Beautiful Butterflies In Schroon Lake

Picture Of The Week: Courtesy Jim Bohleber

With the Spring comes so many splashes of color, erasing those bleak and grey images of winter. But it’s not just the buds and blooms that make up this Technicolor rainbow from Mother Nature, as the keen eye of photographer and nature enthusiast Jim Bohleber recently found. Writes Jim:

It seems like these yellow butterflies have been all over the place this spring. I caught this one, hanging around my hanging basket between rain showers. He was hurrying between flowers, like he was trying to make up for lost time. I think it is one of the swallowtails, possibly an eastern tiger. I'm sure there is somebody out there that can provide a positive ID.
