A good explanation of Facebook’s Places feature with a link on how to disable it. Via Slate.
Each year we get a few tiger swallowtails. They glide over the ivy, and if I get lucky, they land. It was very breezy this afternoon, and this one managed to cling to leaves despite being buffeted about. I don’t know how they do it.
The ones that stick around generally have flaws of some sort. This one had a chunk out of a wing. Some lack a tail. Still, they breed and produce larvae that chew big holes out of my petunias. I forgive them because they look so magnificent.
