I was splashing through Fall Creek today, and I encountered three swallowtails flying about. Two of them perched near me, and I realized what they were eating: dog crap. So I took the photo, because it was one of those moments that upend our romantic view of nature, and those are funny. I felt the same way when I was in Montana once and found ten bald eagles feasting on a dead deer. Our majestic national symbol, nomming on a stinky carcass. In truth, this is common behavior for both butterflies and eagles. So I give you a gorgeous butterfly, dining on a turd. On another note, wouldn’t Jenny and the Turd Slurpers make an awesome band name?
