Appalachian Tiger Swallowtail

By taggart  
Appalachian Tiger Swallowtail
Papilio appalachiensis

Pennsylvania has a variety of swallowtails--- some local variants, and some seen only occasionally----This one turned up in my garden enjoying the Agastache flowers---- If you compare it with the Tiger Swallowtail posted previously-- interested persons will immediately notice the difference. I was very confused and consulted some reference books-----

Enjoy!
