Here is another swallowtail I found on Thursday. The Giant Swallowtails are of the largest found in the United States with wing spans of up to 6 inches.
I found the outside of the wings were much more interesting than the inside spread.
What drew me to find him was the flutter-hover manuever he was doing as he drank from the flower. The wings flapped in a wave from top wings to bottom wings at a very fast flutter. It was really cool to watch.
Even though I find the outside wings more colorful, the inside spread has quite an interesting pattern.
