This butterfly is primarily yellow with black tiger stripes, hence the name. This one has a wingspan of approximately 3.5 to 4 inches.
Eastern Tiger Swallowtails are found all over, most commonly around water, meadows, gardens, and parks.
When hatched, the caterpillars look like bird poop as part of their natural camouflage to protect them from predators.
