Eastern Black Swallowtail
I was not looking for insects
not expecting to see this spectacular butterfly today~~~~~~~
She was resting on some boxwood--moved on to the Jack-in-the pulpits when she sensed me--
I believe she had just emerged and needed a bit of a rest--- and some more wing pumping!
I have NEVER seen one with both tails in tact.
A HUGE THANK YOU: to Joline for the gift of her User Award for "Mirror Image."
