Nice photo Christine! Are you sure that it's a swallow tail? We have swallowtails here and this one is missing the very distinctive shape. From what I can see, it looks like a Zebra Heliconian. True name would be Heliconius Charithonia also known as Zebra Longwing because it's so wide.

Christine,

You've just met the queen of cyan shading and tulips that pose and posture like ballet dancers! She happens to have unbeatable detective ability and finds things when I have given up!

Glad you two are now acquainted!

Asher

BTW, what are the flowers and is this is a set up for showing off butterflies or is it a chance finding?

That's alright Christine; I only knew because they invade my lilac tree and have such a distinctive long shape... :-) Maggie

Asher, as I found the butterflies, I also found them often with these flowers, which as called Mexican Flame Vine and are native to Mexico, central America and West Indies. Their botanical name would be Pseudogynoxys chenopodioides. Sorry if I answered before Christine, but I got an oooh, oooh, I know moment. :-D

It's ok Maggie... I would have had to look them up.. LOL... But it was a chance photo... I walk thru the butterfly trail behind my home with camera in tow... and wait and watch,,, you will see more varieties for sure... Maybe I will not name them... Let you try to guess their names... LOL
