The other day I was watering my garden and all of a sudden this beautiful Eastern Tiger Swallowtail came fluttering by...Nice combo on my Rhododendron isn't it? lol Got lucky there..that's for sure...........Glad you can see it and smile too !!
"Adult males are yellow, with four black "tiger stripes" on each fore wing. The trailing edges of the fore and hind wings are black which is broken with yellow spots. On the medial margin of the hind wing next to the abdomen there are small red and blue spots."
"Eastern Tiger Swallowtails often rest with their wings fully spread, particularly if the sun is out."
Enjoy!! Best viewed LARGE>
