Thank you! I copied the picture into a different spotting so I could name the butterfly... :)

The larger butterfly is Papilio glaucus (Eastern Tiger Swallowtail). FYI.

Oops! I thought the hummingbird moth was a bumblebee. I didn't look very closely... Thank you for the correction! I'll research and change it as soon as I get to my computer. Thanks again!
