Hi Daniel,
Here are a couple more shots for your archive.  I’ve seen Dainty Sulphurs here in Cantral Minnesota for a few summers now.
I’m kind of surprised to read they don’t overwinter this far north.  They certainly must try.  The female in the first photo was laying eggs on weeds in our vegetable garden; on chickweed, I think.
Sorry the second one is blurry.  But I thought if you’re short on photos, I’d include it since it does show the upperside.
Are you still looking for western tiger swallowtail shots?  I may have a few.
Cheers.  And thanks again for this fantastic service!

Dainty Sulphur laying Eggs

Hi Don,
You are so thoughtful to supply our archive with images that we are lacking.  These are marvelous images of a Dainty Sulphur or Dwarf Yellow Sulphur.  After a bit of post production sharpening, the movement in the second Dainty Sulphur photo is a bit less blurry.  If your photos are from Minnesota, your Tiger Swallowtails are most likely either Eastern Tiger Swallowtails or Canadian Tiger Swallowtails.  If you have nice images, send them our way and we will post them if we have time.
