1 thought on “Spicebush Swallowtail”

  1. hi
    I was just in my yard in northeast ohio and saw something ive never seen before. It appeared to be an all black butterfly. The main abdomen,slightly may have been dark brown. It was flitting from flower to flower but never stopping its wings. Ive seen hummingbirds before and that wasnt it. Ive seen swallowtails with other colors in wings, but this was all black. We have black wasps but the wings on this were giant. It didnt fly like a wasp,hummingbird, or butterflies ive seen where they pause on a flower. This would land but quickly move. Thanks for the site
