Black Swallowtail commented on by NRumbaugh West Alexander, Pennsylvania, USA9 years ago

After doing some further digging through books and online I believe that the Black Swallowtail is the best match for what I saw. Interested it know what you are seeing or not seeing that make you think it is not a Black Swallowtail?

Also I don't believe that it is a Papilio multicaudata, the one I photographed does not have nearly enough yellow and it would be considerably far outside its natural range (SW PA).

This is most likely a Wild Strawberry, if growing wild. If planted intentionally then it might be another species.
