Swallowtail Butterfly

The guys came this week to mow our incredibly long lawn. It has been raining so much lately that they hadn't been by in 3 weeks. Once they were done we had a ton of grass that needed to be raked up... 2 acres worth! On Thursday was a beautiful morning so we decided to start raking. It was then that I noticed a butterfly feeding from one of our lilac bushes.

Canadian Tiger Swallowtail (Papilio canadensis)

It was very difficult to photograph it... every time I was about to take a shot, it fluttered to another stem of flowers!
