After lamenting for years that we are unable to photograph the Western Tiger Swallowtails that visit our garden, but rarely land, we got lucky for the second time this year.  This somewhat tattered individual repeatedly landed on the California Black Walnut as well as a Lilac.  Last month we photographed a Western Tiger Swallowtail, possibly the same individual, on a Live Oak.  There was a second individual soaring in the yard today, and this individual, the more aggressive of the two, chased the other away.
