It's a Giant Swallowtail. Congrats on finding these in your yard.

Very beautiful! I am raising my first Giant this year - currently in chrysalis - and I'm so excited to for it to emerge! :-)

Thank you "butterflymomok," It was on my Golden Vicary hedge that blossoms.
"Wifey", thank you. Yours will be just as beautiful.

Congrats! I haven't seen one yet this year. Is that the same plant that your Great Spangled frits were on?
Welcome by the way! I'm in Missouri too.
