Up until a couple of weeks ago I had never heard of, let alone seen a Western Tiger Swallowtail. Now they flutter about every where I go. I wanted to post this shot close enough to my other swallowtail to make a comparison. The butterfly I found today at the pond had more distinct patterns and much more brilliant color. I'm thinking it might be a male. Neither of the butterflies showed concern by my presence, unlike their skittish Monarch cousins.
