THE WANDERER An Eastern Tiger Swallowtail, often a solitary traveler, pauses to refresh himself. Where to next? It’s a decision he makes on his own — having traveled too often in a pack, we know how freeing that can be. Observing him, we’re mesmerized by the occasional lackadaisical flip of his wings as he balances on the blossom that has drawn him from the tree tops. And we understand why the Greeks applied a name to the insect that implied an embodiment of the human soul. We’re pretty sure ours soared a bit that day when he took off. Photo by Ralph Lauer
