I walked outside yesterday afternoon and saw not one, not two, but three Tiger Swallowtails fluttering about.
This handsome male – who you can tell is a male because he lacks the deep blues the female displays…
…this lovely lady…
and this dark morph version, which is easy to identify as a female since male Tiger Swallowtials don’t come in the dark color tones.
As a bonus, this Pipevine Swallowtail (another front yard first for me) also made a brief landing.
All in all, a beautiful, bountiful day for butterflies!

Terrific photos. You hit the jackpot.
Amazing photos, Kathy! 🌟🌟🌟
Some of my favorites in there. Thanks for sharing, Kathy! Those dark ones with the blue spots are my absolute faves and the yellows, second best. Wish I could draw or paint them…..maybe one day……thanks for posting!
Once you start drawing the butterflies, you are going to be addicted!
I first need to take a huge Patience pill, know where I can find one? They are gorgeous tho, and you capture them beautifully!
