Very Exciting News! Jeff’s Earring . . . .

Earring Series - Blackswallowtail butterflies coupled, photographed by Jeff Zablow at "Butterflies and Blooms in the Briar Patch," Eatonton, GA

With much pleasure, I finally, invite you to enjoy my extraordinary and exciting! interaction with fresh, exquisite Eastern Black Swallowtail butterflies. We encountered this pair in August 2016, they coupled together, me stunned by their beauty. We were all at the Butterflies & Blooms Briar Patch Habitat, in Eatonton, Georgia.

By the end of this saga, I was adorned with an earring unequaled in beauty, beyond the ability of the workshops of Tiffanys, Cartier’s, David Webb and all the rest.

Sylbie Yon was there, at the right time, in the right place. The 6 featured images were captured by her. The Eastern Black Swallowtails and I will always be thankful for Sylbie’s images.

To view them, see the top of this wingedbeauty window, and click on ‘Jeff’s Earrings’ – Part 1 . . . after reading and viewing, go above once again and click on ‘Jeff’s Earrings – Part 2 . . . and then click on ‘Jeff’s Earrings’ – Part 3.

This sweet series was zippity-doodah! for Sylbie and for me. How I hope that you will provide us with feedback. Tell us what other wild butterfly earring experiences you’ve seen . . . .

  1. having been involved in butterfly conservation for many years, i have witnessed many such moments..while the magic of wings has not been lost for me, it has apparently diminished in some way…. reading Jeff’s work has brought me to the edge of my chair on a frosty winter morning as he relays his own personal experience in such a joyful way that covers the miles of cyberspace and a summer season gone forever, but for the capture of this amazing experience!

  2. What a rare privilege you were granted…first to see such beauty, then to witness them as co-creators of new life and then to have them choose to share this divine process with you in such an intimate way. They must have sensed your love and respect for them.

    My stories are nothing so grand. However, Red Admirals seem to like rest upon me, not unusual for the species, I understand. I had one rest on my left wrist and spread its wings while I photographed it with my Canon in my right hand! I also have cell phone images of one perched amidst my grey hair. Not an easy “selfie” to take – but a lot of fun. I chat with them – they can be such teases. :-)
