Every now and then when I leave work, insects get caught behind this glass enclosure. Occasionally, butterflies also get stuck and for the past two years, I have been assisting them back to freedom. Normally, its a silver-spotted skipper or a cabbage white… but today was something much more ‘giant’.
To my surprise, a giant swallowtail was stuck frantically flying against the glass this evening. I gently cupped it into my hands and released him back to safety. I snapped this photo quickly with my phone.
