Spicebush Swallowtail

Black and blue Swallow Tail butterfly, orange coloring on underside of wings.


Found dead on sidewalk at local community college (were there is a butterfly garden a few buildings away). Having trouble figuring out exactly what kind of Swallow Tail it is. I apologize for poor image quality.
