Butterfly and Flower #3

The tiger swallowtail is such a beautiful butterfly – such striking pattern and colors!  I’m tempted to plant a black cherry just to encourage more of them to come to my garden!!!

Some females have a dark color form – the black stripes barely visible on the black background.  The butterflies like to visit my pink/purple flowers: echinacea, pinks, verbena, etc.

There’s a great article on raising swallowtails HERE – I’d love to try it sometime!
