Butterfly Time…

Black Eastern Tiger Swallowtail

While going through these photos I took awhile back, I was surprised to see the cool reflection in our pond of this Black Eastern Tiger Swallowtail. I’m so happy that we even had butterflies around because we’ve had such a tough heat wave and drought, it was destroying all of the wildflowers we had growing. We couldn’t even keep up with the watering. Luckily, these butterflies are pretty tough.

    I love this photo because it looks like the butterfly is either about to dive into the water (for some inexplicable reason) or fly off the rock.
    Where do they come from and where can I see them in their natural habitat?
