Summer is the season for Swallowtails in my front yard, with Tiger Swallowtails being the most common variety of visitor.
I frequently see male Tiger Swallowtails flitting about…
…and female Tiger Swallowtails…
…and female Tiger Swallowtails of the dark morph variety, which are so very beautiful.
Well, today I saw what I am calling a “mixed morph” – a female that was mostly dark, but that also kept a bit of the yellow markings.
I think she is rather lovely!

Wow!! So beautiful!
No sooner had I written this post than I looked outside and saw a brand new batch of swallowtails eagerly nipping nectar. I grabbed the camera and spent another hour outside!
Beautiful! You make such great photos it really brings out their beauty.
Thank you! They are even more beautiful in person, but pictures do let you see details we might otherwise miss.
