I have a few of these on a small tree in my back yard. Anybody know what it is? For more photos, follow the link below. Thanks! From Tales of a Transplanted Gardener

Great pic! Looks like a tiger swallowtail.

Thanks Ian, I think you may be right! I'm glad now that I didn't squish them, those are pretty butterflies. They're eating the tree leaves but I don't think they'll cause any real harm.
