Mountain Laurel and a Yellow Tiger Swallowtail
12 x 9 inches oil on canvas board
The Mountain Laurel is Pennsylvania's State flower that begins to bloom in June. It lights up the forest this time of year and brings joy to hikers and butterflies. We were hiking the Hearts Content area of the Allegheny National Forest when we came upon this beautiful flower and several Swallowtails feeding from it's nectar.
