Eastern Tiger Swallowtail

Papilio glaucus

Description:

Biggest one I've ever seen. About 6 inch height.

Habitat:

Our backyard. It was feeding off of our butterfly bush.

Notes:

Hard to get a good picture of. Plus the zoom on my iPod isn't so good. In case you don't see it, it is the yellow object.
