Black Butterfly
Location: Woods, on Pink Ball

I was walking around my backyard when I turned around and noticed in our woods where our old pink ball stands, there was a huge black butterfly with little white spots on the ends of the wings. Could you please tell me what this beautiful bug is?

Hi Maddison,
Your excellent photo of a male Spicebush Swallowtail allows us to eliminate other dark swallowtails that also range in your area of the woods on a pink ball.  Typically, the location field on our form is used to supply a state, country, county or city or some other identifiable location as opposed to a vague site like woods with a pink ball.

I apologize, I wasn’t too sure what it meant, here is the real location; United States, Massachusetts, Centerville
