Thanks for the awesome pic, sign of spring! Hope to see some up this way soon. The cats are welcome to eat whatever they want!

Very pretty!

& that looks like a Tiger Swallowtail to me - not the Giant (which is the 1 w/ larvae that feeds on citrus) - Giants do not have blue on their upper wings.

P.S. IMPE, Giant Swallowtail larvae do not seem to eat enough to do harm to my trees.
