Eastern Tiger Swallowtail

Here is the Virginia state insect, the Eastern Tiger Swallowtail. This fellow was enjoying one of the only flowers that the deer seem to not eat in the Colvin Run Habitat.
By the looks of this guys, he has seen some tough going as the trailing edges of the wings are clearly damaged.
This photo was taken during a hot summer day in July.
There are better butterfly photos posted at
