Swallowtail Butterfly

(click to enlarge)

Need help with ID...

We have Lantana flowers in both the backyard and front. These plants are great for attracting butterflies! Butterfly plants add a beautiful touch to your environment and bring nature to you.

Thanks for stopping by,

Craig Glenn

Looks like a Giant Swallowtail on a Lantana plant.... but don't quote me I just looked it up cause butterflies are not my thing. I could be dead wrong!

What a beauty, Craig. I've looked in my N.America guide book and it's not quite like any shown. Most definitely a swallowtail. By the way, stand up and take a bow for taking such an awesome photo!! ~karen

Hi Craig! It's been a while. I had to scroll down a bit to see what I have missed. Great shots, Man!

Thanks for the "identification assistance" at my post. I did not expect such a whacky comeback in the comments. Your note was perfect!
