These are Tiger Swallowtail butterflies and they are everywhere which I love. This first photo is a just a picture of Joe Pye Weed after the butterfly flew away. See the color is kind of odd. I guess you could call it a dusty rose.
Tiger Swallowtail on Joe Pye Weed
My brother and I got going kind of late so we only did 30 miles but it was all in the mountains around here with about 3500 feet of climbing in 90 degree temps. Several times on our rides lately we have gotten rained on but not today, though I would have welcomed it.
