This looks like a Spicebush Swallowtail to me. Is that correct?

Pretty picture!

Thanks for your inputs. I thought it was. This is the first one that we have identified in our garden. We see quite a few Black Eastern Tiger Swallowtail females. I saw the blue pattern on the hind wings and realized that it was not an Eastern Tiger Swallowtail.
