I see you are looking for photos of the Western Tiger Swallowtail. I am not a bug expert, so I can’t be 100% certain I have the right butterfly. However, I have attached one of my better images for your consideration. Please contact me … if I can provide other and/or higher-resolution images.
This is not a Western Tiger Swallowtail, but we are quite thrilled to post this other underrepresented species on our site, and we would also gladly take higher resolution images. This is a Pale Swallowtail, Papilio eurymedon, also known as a Pale Tiger Swallowtail or Pallid Tiger Swallowtail. This is a west coast species. You can read more about it on BugGuide.
