The "Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly" is quite large. You can't miss it.
It is painted here on one of its favorite flowers, the butterfly bush.
It flies so softly, it looks like it is floating when it's flying.
The eastern version is larger and a western version is a bit smaller, but just as beautiful.
Sometimes the females are brown.
Swallowtails are one of the Types of Butterflies we often see in our yards.
