Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly and Flowers – Two Snapshots

These two photos were taken three days ago in my front yard. I had to look up the name of the butterfly, and I still don’t know what kind of flowers these are. After 37 years of teaching college, I still don’t know very much about lots of things. Click on the photos once for larger size, twice for full resolution.

  1. Great pictures! Wonderful butterfly! We’ve had one of those visiting our yellow cup plant flowers lately. Check out Bill’s Facebook photos. Also, we’ve been seeing some Monarchs, probably because they are attracted to all the milkweed plants out back. I wish there were more. Their scarcity is worrisome!

    • I took a look at Bill’s photos. I think it’s the same butterfly. 🙂 I was lucky to see mine. I don’t have many flowers in the yard. I had some roses, but the Japanese beetles got them.
