Here is a picture of another new butterfly in my garden. They adore the phlox! So, what do I have? I thought they seemed different, like maybe I had a male and female, but I am just clueless. It took forever to just get these pictures. And I still have a large yellow butterfly floating around that I can't get close to. Hopefully one of these days. Thanks for the help.




I just love how this picture turned out. I surprised myself. lol

Beautiful butterflies and a beautiful garden.

I want that rock. Got a thing for rocks. I'm always telling DH that I'm an easy wife to buy for. No diamonds, just big rocks for my garden!


RE: ID help

Definitely a giant swallowtail.
