I know now that this is a black swallowtail. But LOOK at the pattern on this baby! My eye was drawn to it as soon as I stepped outside. Never have I seen one of these before. It was very big too. Spotted and photographed in Eau Claire Wi. on Aug 8, 2011 at 1:00 pm.

Giant Swallowtail

Hi Gail,
This is a Giant Swallowtail, not a Black Swallowtail.  It is reported to be the largest North American butterfly.
