Eastern Tiger Swallowtail

This Tiger Swallowtail visited one of the vines in my yard in the late afternoon.  It had suffered a tear to its left hind wing, probably as the result of a bird bite.  Fortunately, it was one of the lucky ones that got away, and this didn’t hamper its movement as it gracefully fluttered from flower to flower sipping nectar.  Watching this beautiful butterfly was one of the highlights of my day.

  1. I had a butterfly visit recently that had large pieces missing from us wings as well. I didn’t think about it being from a bird- good call. Nice photos by the way. 🙋🐦
