Dear Bugman,
I will join the onslaught of letters and photos. I looked at your Papilio collection and noticed no tiger swallowtail with this white background. You have plenty so you may not want this one. Photo taken of tiger swallowtail (Papilio rutulus?) on a thimbleberry leaf (Rubus parviflora) eastside Cascade Mountains, Oregon. Here’s another butterfly (Nymphalis californica I think) on dogbane (Apocynum androsaemifolium) flowers loved by many different insects. Also eastside Cascades Oregon Best regards,
Nan

Hi Nan,
We are very excited to get your photo of what we believe to be a Pale Swallowtail, Papilio eurymedon. It is very similar to the Western Tiger Swallowtail, but paler. Your California Tortoiseshell image is also much appreciated.
