Butterfly Days: No. 3

This photo is of a Tiger Swallowtail, I think, but just as sure as I positively identify a creature, someone let’s me know I don’t know a butterfly from a shutterbug.

Your run-of-the-mill swallowtail butterfly doesn’t appear to be as peripatetic as the Zebra Swallowtail, but they still are not as laid back as the Monarch.

There are 550 species of swallowtail butterfly. It lives on all continents except Antarctica, and if global warming keeps going the way it is, don’t be surprised to see it there too.

Some of you may be getting tired of my butterfly photos, so I have one more to go tomorrow and then I will get back to less flighty subjects.
