Tiger Swallowtail

Hooray! It's my first post! Thanks to my son Siah who helped (basically did it all) set up this site.

This is a Tiger Swallowtail butterfly.  The female of one of Minnesota's two species has a black morph.  I see them fairly often in late summer at Springbrook Nature Center.  The more common yellow color phase is below.

I intend to use this blog site to display pictures of the many aspects of nature I am constantly given opportunities to see.  Many people bring things to Springbrook to be identified and I photograph as much as time allows.
