Eastern tiger swallowtail

Last summer was such a good season for these big beauties but they are scarce this year. One flew by us yesterday and we both did a 180 to see it. On one visit to our nature center last August I saw 30+ - this shot is from that visit. The females have a lot of blue as in this individual - but females also can be black. I've only seen one black Tiger this year and it was way back in Spring.


Thanks for the heads-up on Explore - I'll check it out!
