I love swallowtails. Great shot Lisa. Also, when you are doing your write-up, there is a block "Add a Reference" that has a good place to put websites. There is a place for Encyclopedia of Life, Wikipedia and the bottom on is for all others, like the one you have in Description. Putting the reference link there makes it easier to find and leaves more room for personal notes in the other blocks. Thanks again Lisa. Great series.
