Tiger Swallowtail

Pteronrus glaucus 3-5 inches
Abundant and colorful, this swallowtail prefers wide open spaces, gardens, orchards, woodland margins and any place else that supplies its favorite foods.This one was seen sipping on a Butterfly bush!

Thank you to Myrab for her User award for "Buggy sunday." I enjoyed your comments---The Amish make good neighbors!

Think I'll have to invest in a butterfly bush if it attracts beauties like this swallowtail.
Top class image.

The detail captured here in this very pretty butterfly is impressive, Jenn.
It seems to move from the screen almost in 3D.

A fine specimen of a Swallowtail Jenn

Our ones, which are confined to certain areas of Norfolk, can only survive if there is an adundance of Milk Parsley, for the caterpillars to munch on. This has to be well maintained, to avoid it being swamped by other plants that inhabit the broads
