Eastern Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly


Eastern Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly, female (Papilio glaucus)

For the last couple of weeks, I have observed an Eastern Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly in our backyard. She visits our sunflowers and Autumn sages frequently. I still have fennel growing in one of the garden beds. Lets see, if she decided to lay some eggs or come to visit the flowers to tank some energy. 🦋🌻🌱

Eastern Tiger Swallowtail (Papilio Glaucus)

Several years back, while Kevin took the clothes out of the dryer he said that there is a big butterfly hanging around my Mexican sunflowers. I might want to check it out. When I looked out the patio door, I saw a big Tiger Swallowtail fluttering around my flower bed. Quickly I grabbed my camera and captured a couple of photos. This was the first time, Kevin and I saw an Eastern Tiger Swallowtail in our backyard. What a beautiful sight.
