Very worn Eastern Tiger Swallowtail, Kennebunk Plains WMA, Maine

I find it somewhat amazing that this very worn, perhaps injured, Eastern Tiger Swallowtail butterfly is still on the wing and busy in the Dogbane. It looks like it may have survived a bird attack…or at least a long rough life among the plants on the Kennebunk Plains Wildlife Management Area here in Southern Maine. It was still very busy gathering nectar from the last flowers of the Dogbane. Sony RX10iv at 600mm equivalent. Program mode. 1/500th @ f4 @ ISO 100. Processed in Polarr.
