Eastern tiger swallowtail

Papilio glaucus


An Eastern tiger swallowtail and a snowberry clearwing hummingbird moth! Last night, we had a huge storm and I went outside to grab something out of my shed. When I came back inside and turned on the light, an Eastern Tiger Swallowtail was circling it. I captured it, went outside set it free and then ran back inside again. I looked up and saw him again at the light, he was SO fast. It was crazy! I let him out again and he is flying around my house in the sun, a very happy butterfly. ;)
