I am enjoying Florida, and especially this Lepidoptera Papilionidea that is flittering about the Myers Lemon tree in the backyard. This artsy-looking butterfly's wingspan is from 4.6" to 7.4" and is common in Florida, but not in Seattle! Their range is eastern North America west to the Rockies, south through the desert Southwest to South America.
These lovely photos were taken by Donald Hall (top image) and Greg Clark (second image). After chasing a couple of Giant Swallowtails around the yard- at 92 F and 98% humidity and not getting anything close to these-google butterfly hunting won out for images. Thank you guys!
