This beautiful creature visited my yard the other day. At first I thought it must be a female Tiger Swallowtail, but when I looked it up – it appears to be a Black Swallowtail.
It fed on the various Agastache flowers I have in my yard. What a beauty, eh?
I’d have to say this is a life butterfly for me – first time I have ever seen and identified this one.
Makes me wonder what the black ones I saw earlier in the year were. I didn’t look close enough.
What butterflies have you seen in your yard lately?
