Thanks for pointing that out! I changed the other one but guess I never changed this one! I will correct it!

Beautiful spotting, Courtney! I always see these guys as they are flying by at the tops of the trees.

I believe this is an Eastern Tiger Swallowtail, though.
Papilio eurymedon (Pale Swallowtail) only occurs in the Western US and has much darker markings:

Hope this helps!
