Some Kinda Swallowtail
Hi there,
This beauty was on my Chicago area butterfly bush this morning. Do you know which variety this is?
Many thanks,
Joe

Hi Joe,
This is a Black Swallowtail, a female judging by her small yellow spots. This is a common butterfly found in open meadows. The larval food include parsley, carrots, celery and Queen Anne’s Lace.
