Hello! I think this beautiful butterfly may be another Giant Swallowtail (Papilio cresphontes). It was puddling in a drainage area. So gorgeous! The wind was buffeting it about somewhat; today is partly cloudy and quite warm, 90 degrees. No significant rain for over a month, so any moisture is appreciated by wildlife.
How nice to hear from you again. Your puddling Giant Swallowtail is an excellent addition to our archives.
