Sorry that this is a couple of months late. I had the chance to take some pictures of this pretty thing some time back in June. It was resting on the other side of the glass pane right in front of me. Unfortunately, I was only equipped with my smart phone camera, so please pardon the image quality. I hope these images are useful to you; viewing a moth from its underside was very interesting.
Love the site! Images of pretty bugs inspire me in my creative endeavors. Thank you for hosting so many of them.
We received four other images of Tropical Swallowtail Moths this year, and your image is probably the best. We also received numerous comments of sightings without images. Seems it was a banner year for this species that puts in cyclical appearances.
