Stopped by Today

This pretty Tiger Swallowtail spent a lot of time on my Butterfly bush today. Looks like he/she lost part of her tail at some point but she sure was busy sucking that nectar!

Definitely a he. The females would have more blue on the back wing.

Here is a link that might be useful: Eastern Tiger Swallowtail (Papilio glaucus)

Nice! I love how some of them have spots on the edges of the wings that are heart shaped. Corny, I know!
