Eastern Tiger Swallowtail...

I captured this perfectly beautiful female
Eastern Tiger Swallowtail on my new butterfly bush yesterday.

It is one of the most common and most beautiful of the eastern butterflies.
 Not a mark on her, no wear or tear...I suspect she is new to the world.

  15. Only God can make such a blue - and that word does not do the color or texture justice!
