Close up image of a Tiger Swallowtail
Hello, I’ve seen mentioned more than once in this site that your local Swallowtails are camera shy. This one certainly wasn’t. The image was taken in (northern)Illinois on a plant called Tithonia, aka "Mexican Sunflower" (though it is not a helianthus), an excellent beacon for butterflies, hummingbirds and the like. This image has been cropped, but the full-size image makes a wonderful background for a computer screen. Thank you for providing an informative site.
Regards,
Jeff
