This beautiful, large swallowtail was in constant motion. Is it a Giant Swallowtail (Papilio cresphontes)? Photo taken today, warm weather at 80 degrees. I think the plant is Purple Verbena. Thank you!
Hi Again Ellen,
You are correct that this is a Giant Swallowtail, and they truly are beautiful butterflies.
