A beauty


This seems to be a wonderful year for butterflies. I've noticed them all over lately. This one decided to visit the polytunnel. I don't know what kind it is, but at about 4 inches across, it's one of the largest I've seen recently.

A very beautiful butterfly...I think it is a black swallowtail...or certainly a close relative!!

I think it may be a Spicebush Swallowtail. Great photo! I can never get them to sit still long enough to get a picture.
