Eastern tiger swallowtail butterfly, female.


I am always on the lookout for butterflies. They are a nice subject for any photographer. I was looking around me but everywhere I looked were Monarch butterflies and the Admiral butterflies. And then out of the blue arrived this large magnificent butterfly. It was a female due to the blue patches on the edges of the wings.
